Research conducted in different parts of the world indicates that people are more likely to die from wrong handling by helpers at the scene of accidents than the impact of the accident itself. This means that the lack of First Aid and Basic Life Support skills by ordinary citizens who try to help accident victims cause them to mishandle casualties leading to permanent injury, disability or death.

As it stands that Road Traffic Accidents (RTA) is the major cause of death in Ghana, it is important for people to be educated on how to safely and effectively deal with all forms of accidents. This is also imperative because there is an absence of accessible paramedic services to all parts of Ghana.

This situation has necessitated initiation of a National First and Basic Life Support education program which equip ordinary citizens with the basic skills to deal with accidents and injuries before professional medical help arrive. 

We aim to reach all Ghanaians through TV programs, Brochures and face-to-face training programs in schools, churches, markets and other parts of the Ghanaian communities. We will train local representatives within every community who will, in turn, carry out regular trainings under the supervision of RAPiD.
