The monthly run Basic First Aid Workshop conducted by the PNG Red Cross Society is gaining momentum.

Twenty-three participants attended a three day workshop which was conducted here in Port Moresby.

The First Aid Program has three components which are:
  • Basic First Aid which is aimed at corporate organizations where a fee of K200 per participant is charged. Upon completion of the course, a three year certifying certificate is awarded to them.
  • Community Based First Aid (CBFA) is available free of charge to communities and the general public.
  • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Revalidation Courses. This is a one day workshop where course participants are charged a fee of K100. Upon completion of the course participants are awarded a certificate valid for one year. This course is offered under CBFA free of charge to communities.
First Aid courses are available through all Red Cross Society Branches nationwide. Provinces without established branches can contact the National Society Headquarters for further details at the following address:
