History of injury in a developing country: a scoping review of injury l​iterature in Lebanon.

​​Globally, injuries are the leading cause of death and disability among people under 44 years of age claiming more than 4.4-million individuals each year, particularly in regions suffering with low socio-economic status and a history of political unrest and armed conflict.
