Long Description:
A predecessor of Czech Red Cross was Czechoslovak Red Cross. After the creation of the new Czech Republic (visit link) , the Czech Red Cross (visit link) was recognized by the ICRC and joined the International Federation the same year.

The Czech Red Cross does not have a clearly identified profile in the country, but good relations are being developed with the national media in order to strengthen the public image of the society.

There are 76 branches throughout the country, which are independent and under the Statutes of the Czech RC, which were adopted at the Council of delegates of the Czech Red Cross.

The society has a medium-term development plan, which was adopted in 1993. The plan focuses on development of blood donation, first-aid training, social welfare, home care, disaster preparedness and youth activities.

In 2004, the society employed 195 staff (160 at local branches and 32 at headquarters). There are around 8,000 active volunteers who are involved in its basic programmes.

Membership comes mainly from the more affluent people in Czech society and recruitment of new members is a challenge. Youth recruitment in rural areas is easier. The society has 81,881 members including 1,085 youth volunteers.
