More people attend medical education courses in North-East Syria

The medical education is intended to enable participants to care for the wounded at the scene of an attack or in a hostile environment.

The Health Committee of North and East Syria offers the population courses in life-saving emergency measures and advanced first aid training. The courses for emergency aid and life-saving in war are offered within the framework of an emergency decree of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) declared on 6 July. The decision was taken in light of Turkey's threats of a new invasion in the region. The courses are held in hospitals, clinics and other health facilities in the AANES area. Participants learn what to do if an ambulance cannot be there for hours - if at all - and are trained in dealing with war casualties.

Dozens of citizens in Til Hemis and Qamishlo have applied to health centres following the announcement of the state of emergency.

A nurse named Elî Hesen El-Ebid at the health centre in Til Hemis said that medical education centres have been opened in Til Hemis and the villages of Sediyê, Henwe and Xernîbe.

Eli noted that the citizens are guided to centers by the local communes and assemblies, and the training cycle lasts for 6 days.

“Everyone should receive emergency response training so that they can help both their families and those in need,” a health worker, Ferdos Setam El-Hesen, said.

In the meantime, the Kurdish Red Crescent Heyva Sor a Kurd today gave certificates of training to 116 people who were trained at the Education and Training Board in the Qiwetli neighbourhood in Qamishlo.

Heyva Sor a Kurd introduced a 3-day training session for teachers upon the call of the Cizire District Teachers' Union.
