The only possible way to reduce the incidence of burns injuries is through prevention. There is a need to create awareness at all levels of the society to impart information on prevention from burn injuries. At present there is no organization to promote this campaign and burn care units must therefore start the work of prevention through awareness. This will go a long way towards reducing the incidence of burns.
