  • Mission statement

    The aim of the Primary trauma Care Foundation (PTCF) is to train health professionals in the developing world, where traffic accidents alone account for 1. 4 million deaths every year. As well as teaching life-saving skills, we also train local health professionals in effective teaching so that they can pass on their skills. We devolve control and responsibility from the outset to produce a local, self-sustaining programme. Since our formation in 1996 we have introduced Primary Trauma Care into 70 countries in the developing world, and trained many thousands of doctors and other health workers.
