We are the International Surf Lifesaving Association (ISLA), and we have developed a prototype of the world’s first Global Drowning Tracker©. The Global Drowning Tracker© works by allowing people around the world to input statistics on drownings. Anyone with access to the internet or a cellphone (via SMS text messaging) can report a drowning. The end result is a tool that enables researchers, lifesavers and drowning prevention experts a real-time snapshot of where resources can cost-effectively be implemented to prevent the global drowning epidemic.
