The project

EUinAID – YOUTH INVOLVED IN FIRST AID

WHY WE HAVE DECIDED TO SUBMIT THE PROJECT?

There are different approaches on First Aid training in Europe with a significant gap between

  • North Europe – between 95-70% of people trained in First Aid in Norway, Germany, Austria
  • South Europe – a very low percentage
  • In the rest of the world, many countries have only the 5-10% of people trained in First Aid.

Europe is facing several challenges:

  • Increasing of aged population
  • Increasing of Road accident
  • Increasing of Hearth diseases
  • Increasing of Chemical and environmental hazards
  • Increasing of Alcoholism among young people
