First Aid Program is the flagship program of RCRC Movement and First Aid Trainings are the strength of Pakistan Red Crescent (PRC). PRC has changed its strategic direction to increase its outreach.

Initially the Program was running in NHQ and 7 x Provincial Branches, providing regular First Aid trainings through it’s volunteers all over Pakistan. Keeping in view the increased number of RTAs, bomb blasts, floods and earthquakes, PRC decided to take up the momentous goal of training a “First Aider in Every Home”. The program will now be implemented in 152 districts of Pakistan, through District First Aid Trainer in each district.

The target audience for this program will be educational institution (schools, colleges and universities). Pakistan produces about 445,000 university graduates and 10,000 computer science graduates annually.
