The Global Plan for the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety (GPDoA) has five pillars to reduce the road crash burden, especially in low and middle income (LMI) countries. Previously we have reported on crashes in Cambodia resulting in disability and have conducted further research on crash characteristics and their impact. This paper is a case study of the degree to which GPDoA addresses crashes that result in disability. The findings highlight gaps under all pillars of GPDoA and need for greater consideration of the impacts of road crashes during the remainder of the Decade of Action and beyond.
