Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventable deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences, establishing hemorrhage as the most common cause of preventable death in trauma.*
The Stop the Bleeding Coalition is focused on raising awareness of how, with the proper training and materials, death from bleeding can be prevented. Simple measures can save many lives.
Mission: The mission of the coalition is to support the Stop the Bleed campaign by providing resources that enable collaboration and cooperation between the many people and organizations working to train and equip the nation to reduce the loss of life due to traumatic bleeding.
Who are we? The Coalition consists of people and organizations who wants to save lives. We are health care professionals, first responders, teachers, parents, teenagers, veterans, government officials and many others.
