Building A Nation Lifesavers
Most cardiac arrests happen in the home, but only 2% of people in India are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). More than 130,000 deaths each year are caused by roadside accidents, but 80% of roadside accident victims get no emergency care.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of India is launching a movement to build a nation of lifesavers, training friends and family in first aid and CPR. Learn how to save the lives of the ones you love.
