First Aid Training in Mali


TDI were contracted to provide Basic First Aid Training in Mali to MINUSMA personnel from Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs) in several locations in Mali.


Training was provided by six experienced Medical Trainers to peacekeepers from countries including Chad, Guinea, Senegal, Cambodia, Nepal, Bangladesh and Niger. This training was required as a response to the increase in attacks on MINUSMA peacekeeping troops.


2,800 peacekeepers received basic first aid training in northern Mali, including Gao and Kidal. Each peacekeeper who completed the training course was provided with their own Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK).
