Andriadze Mariam



Burn-related injuries represent a significant global health problem. These injuries can cause high mortality and morbidity worldwide, as well as different kinds of disabilities. More than 180,000 people die from burn injuries every year. The studies conducted in different countries indicate that children are mostly exposed to the risk of getting burn injuries worldwide. Unintentional burn injuries are one of the leading causes of childhood deaths. Due to these injuries, more than 100,000 children are hospitalized every year worldwide. Therefore, more epidemiological research needs to be conducted about this issue in order to plan preventive measures.
