First aid app goes global

The British Red Cross’s first aid app has become so successful that it is now launching in in 17 countries by the end of this year. On World First Aid Day (14 September), the mobile app was launched in Canada, Australia, Mexico, Israel, and Ireland. Later this year, the app will also be launched in Chile, China, Czech Republic, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Lebanon, Philippines, Russia, Sweden and Thailand.

We always knew the mobile app was a strong idea – it’s based on our simple and easy approach to learning first aidskills. But even we never thought it would prove so popular so quickly.

The launch in China, in particular, means that, in one fell swoop, more than 1.35 billion more people will potentially be able to access vital first aid knowledge quickly and easily – possibly to life-saving effect
