Description : The Rio Project, carried out between 2009 and 2013, comprised a set of International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) initiatives in partnership with Brazilian governmental agencies, neighbourhood associations and the Brazilian Red Cross (BRC) to mitigate the humanitarian consequences of armed violence.
The experience resulted in integrated action related to health promotion and education that seek to protect the population and develop the resilience of those who live and/or work in favelas in Rio de Janeiro. In places where the State and its structures are still in operation, the ICRC adapts its experience and works in support of local authorities, rather than replace them in the provision of basic services, and supports increased State action. In the case of Rio, some of these initiatives have become public policy.
At the request of local governments, some of the methodologies developed during the Rio Project are being replicated in 12 cities across Brazil, in other Latin American countries and other continents.

The first aid programme was run with the BRC and trained the residents of Rio's favelas in basic first aid so they could give first aid until specialized help arrived.
