Providing first aid services to injured people was one of the first services provided by the Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers for over 100 years. Today, there is a growing interest of private and public sectors alike in ensuring that their respective employees and the population at large receive first aid training. Effectively, first aid reduces deaths, injuries and impact during disasters and daily emergencies.
Now, almost all 187 Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) National Societies (NS) have first aid as their core activity.


Due to the awareness on the importance of first aid techniques knowledge in reducing the consequences of any type of accident, special attention is increasingly paid to first aid and prevention. Aware that task-shifting (a process of delegation whereby tasks are moved, where appropriate, to less specialized persons) has become a very important process to address health challenges in the last few years, RCRC National Societies are the major first aid educator and provider in the world. Simple first aid skills, and the confidence to use them, can save lives and everyone, if properly trained, has the potential to save lives. The general public should be encouraged to learn first aid since they are often the first present on the spot and thus the first link in any survival chain (pre-hospital care).
