Denmark has implemented a number of initiatives resulting in a remarkable tripling of both bystander CPR and survival rate for victim of sudden cardiac arrest. A main contributor to the massive change is TrygFonden.
The Danish foundation TrygFonden works to make Denmark a safer place to be. Our mission is to inspire everyone in Denmark to take responsibility for their own safety as well as that of others. TrygFonden manages the campaign You Can Save Lives as well as the website www.hjerterstarter.dk.
