First Aid Saves Lives

Millions of people are hurt or killed by injuries every year due to inadequate response or lack of timely assistance. Taking immediate action and applying the appropriate techniques, while waiting for professional help, can considerably reduce deaths and injuries, and the impact of disasters and everyday emergencies.

First aid is a humanitarian action that should be accessible to all. The Red Cross Red Crescent is asking for legislative provisions to make first aid training compulsory for every driving licence candidate. It is also essential to introduce first aid training to every person at all stages of their life — at home, in school, at the workplace. First aid training should be accessible to everyone, not just to those who can afford it.
