First Aid for First Responders

This publication is a follow-up to the ‘Basic First Aid for Africa’ manual, and of course based on the same evidence-based methodology mentioned before.

First Responders can be mobilized for extraordinary events, both man-made calamities (road accidents, political unrest, conflict etc.) and natural disasters. The advanced First Aid knowledge and skills in this manual put First Aid in a broader context of pre-hospital care in the event of emergencies and disasters in Africa, especially when First Aid providers encounter situations with multiple casualties with several injuries. These advanced knowledge and skills can also be put into action in assisting people in need in local communities.

The digital First Aid for First Responders manual can be downloaded free of charge. Please complete the form below to access this invaluable resource.
