Our Progress

Our Progress

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

Taught 3 million people

Trained 117,222 instructors

Held 134,510 full in-person 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.
