In settings where many deaths occur at home and where civil registration systems are not well established, deaths that occur away from health facilities may not be recorded and the cause of death not identified. This study aims to test a model to identify and record deaths secondary to injuries. Ethical approval has been obtained from the Nepal Health Research Council and the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK.This one-year, prospective study is being conducted in two rural municipalities (Bakaiya and Bhimphedi) in the Makwanpur district Nepal using methods derived from the principles of verbal autopsy. Two researchers, 107 Female Community Health Volunteers (FCHVs) and 33 health facility staffs were trained between 8-24thJanuary 2019. The study started on 1stFebruary 2019. FCHVs will notify health facility staff when someone dies in their ward area. From these notifications, the researcher will identify cases where someone died from an injury and, after a respectful period of mourning, will invite the families of the victim to take part in an interview to better understand the circumstances of the event that lead to the injury. The study will illustrate the circumstances of fatal injuries in these communities, identify potentially modifiable risk factors for injury and indicate the proportion of fatal injury cases that access healthcare facilities. The implementation of this study has been undertaken with Mother and Infant Research Activities (MIRA).
