Abstract: Injuries were the leading cause of hospital admissions in Sri Lanka for the past two decades. Common causes for injuries in Sri Lanka are road traffic crashes, falls, animal bites, occupational accidents, violence and humanitarian crisis. However, community based data on injuries in Sri Lanka is scarce. Therefore the objective of this study was to describe the occurrence of injuries and the associated factors in a semi-urban community in Central Sri Lanka. A community-based descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in Gangawatakorale administrative area among 696 households selected by cluster sampling which included 3110 household dwelling residents.
