Drowning is one of the biggest killers in many low- and middle-income countries. Why are so many deaths going unnoticed?
Our international work
Drowning is a silent epidemic. It claims an estimated 360,000 lives worldwide each year, over one-third of which are children.
The RNLI is working in partnership with others to make drowning a global priority - and to provide at-risk communities with the knowledge, equipment and skills they need to reduce this staggering loss of life.
