World First Aid Day

World First Aid Day is a global observance held on the second Saturday in September..The term “first aid” refers to the assistance given to anyone suffering a sudden injury or illness. Its main goals are to preserve life and prevent the condition from worsening. It is not always performed by medical personnel. In emergency situations, ordinary people often have to perform first aid to save someone's life. World First Aid Day aims at raising awareness of how first aid can prevent injuries and save lives in everyday and crisis situations, as well as at promoting the accessibility of the first aid. Events and activities held on this day focus on first aid training. As part of our social awareness activity we organized activity on basic life support BLS at Northwest General hospital and research center for school students to train them for BLS . The Workshop was carried out by our very well qualified consultant Dr. Hayat
