With the full endorsement of the Health Department, Dr York Chow, recognized that this organization will be the key driver in promoting the Awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), and the use of CPR/AED.
One objective of the Resuscitation Council Hong Kong is to establish a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) program in HK. This is a significant step in improving the survival rate of SCA victims, an appropriate extension to the "Golden 5-minutes" campaign promoted by the Fire Department a few years ago.
