The Ambulance Access for All Foundation India (AAAF) is a collective formed by young Indian professionals who recognized the critical need for a well- Read moreorganised and interconnected ambulance service in the country. Since 2005, it has actively initiated, backed, and encouraged various projects aimed at advancing first aid, emergency medical services, and pre-hospital care across India. Its notable contributions include establishing self-sustaining and universally accessible life support ambulance services, such as the renowned "DIAL 1298 FOR AMBULANCE" in Mumbai and Kerala, along with supporting the implementation of "Dial 108 for Ambulance" in multiple Indian states. These efforts were crucial in areas where such services were previously non-existent, bolstering operators, systems, and processes. Moreover, AAAF India has been a consistent supporter of diverse initiatives concerning first aid, ambulance services, and emergency medical response in numerous regions including Bangalore, Chennai, Bihar, Kerala, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Odisha, West Bengal, and Gujarat. Additionally, it previously extended its support to a significant highway emergency rescue project, covering a vast expanse of 3800 kilometres across multiple states, ensuring swift medical assistance in critical situations.


  • Mumbai Emergency Management Excercise Programme


    The MEMEx - I and II (Mumbai Emergency Management Exercise) conducted by the organisation involved a collaborative effort with multiple institutions, including the BMC, P J Hinduja National Hospital, and LifeSupporters Institute of Health Sciences. It brought together local emergency responders, hospitals, educational institutions, and humanitarian agencies to enhance Mumbai’s emergency response system through intensive training, workshops, and a comprehensive field-based drill over seven days. Led by the United Nations Disaster Management Team with support from national and state disaster management authorities, the event, conducted in 2009 and 2010, featured international faculty from esteemed institutions in the USA, focusing on strengthening disaster response capabilities in the city.

  • First Responders Training Programme

    The organisation aims to equip Indians with crucial skills as first responders during medical crises through comprehensive First Aid and Basic Life Support (BLS) training. Teaming up with the LifeSupporters Institute of Health Sciences, it has conducted numerous workshops across various sectors including corporations, schools, and residential communities. Collaborating with entities like Tata, Tata-AIG, Hindustan Unilever, HSBC, BPCL, Philips, Jet Airways, and many others, these workshops aim to empower individuals from diverse backgrounds, including students from several prominent educational institutions like Dhirubai Ambani International School, HR College, and Bombay Cambridge School, among others, fostering a nation-wide network of capable first aiders.

  • Healthcare Fund Programme

    Over 15 years, the AAA Foundation acknowledged ambulance crews for pre-hospital care. Amid COVID-19, it supports frontline health workers—doctors, nurses, paramedics, and ambulance crews—critical in the pandemic fight. With a healthcare workforce shortage, their safety is paramount. Teaming with the Life Supporters Institute of Health Science, it aims to aid 10,000+ healthcare workers and families. Funds provide PPE and create a safety net for emergencies, ensuring their well-being, addressing COVID-19 risks, and fostering a resilient healthcare system.
