Magen David Adom, Israel’s first-aid, blood supply and ambulance service, has launched its official smartphone application aimed at saving lives in various possible situation. Users can immediately access – in Hebrew – urgent medical information written in simple language, detailed animations, safety advice, training videos and tips. It also enables people to call MDA immediately and get emergency assistance over the phone and even alert the organization asking for immediate help.

The advantage, says MDA, is that the app is available to people without an Internet connection. If someone has been hurt away from home in Israel, during a flight or while broad, information can be obtained.

The International Red Cross has launched in other languages a similar app in Canada, Mexico, Australia, China, Ireland, Sweden, the Czech Republic and others.

MDA is an iPhone app to facilitate young donors recruitment and ease the blood donations process.

Despite the awareness of the importance of blood donations in saving lives only 3.8% of the population in Israel donates blood regularly (1200 units/day). This application was developed, to facilitate recruitment of young donors, raise their consciousness and ease their access to blood collection sites nationwide.
