Stop the Bleed Progress Report

Our Progress

Since the STOP THE BLEED® initiative launched in 2017 we have:

  • Taught 1.3 million people
  • Trained 70,000 instructors
  • Held 76,000 courses

STOP THE BLEED®. The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and ACS Committee on Trauma take this call to action seriously. Our goal is to train every American in basic bleeding control techniques and to work tirelessly toward placing bleeding control kits in every public venue, including schools, community centers, places of worship, and stadiums. Much work remains to be done to accomplish this goal. However, much work has already been accomplished.
