InAGlobe Education is a partnership building social enterprise. By facilitating partnerships between humanitarians and academics we seek to tackle the effects of scarcity and poverty in developing countries with technological innovation and in turn help educate engineering students about the most important global challenges.

Point of Care Viral Hepatitis Device

March 2018

Up to 80% of deaths due to viral hepatitis are not diagnosed before occurring. This project aims to create a POC device to improve results of the screening processes.

Viral Hepatitis is slowly drifting towards becoming the most lethal infectious disease, as tuberculosis-caused deaths are slowly decreasing. Up to 90% of deaths as a result of Hepatitis B go undiagnosed, and up to 80% for Hepatitis C. With rapid diagnostic tests being convenient yet with insufficient sensitivity, many infected persons are not detected in screening processes. Thus this project sets out to develop a device that improves on the current screening devices.

Pill-Organiser for Self-Medication

March 2018

A pill organiser for orphans in Casa do Gaiato-Maputo to self medicate appropriately. Motivated by the poor disease management due to limited number of healthcare workers.

Casa do Gaiato is an orphanage (amongst other things) 2 hours away from Maputo. In a country where 11.5% of the population is infected with HIV/AIDS, the orphanage is not exempt from this statistic. With the few health workers and significant treatment that is retroviral drugs, children find themselves undereducated and taking a lot of time and resources from the healthcare centre at the orphanage. Thus a proposed project by Fundación Mozambique Sur is the creation of a pillbox that informs the children when they need to take a specific pill. In addition to this, disease management is known to be poor but it is not quantified, so implementing a data acquisition process can shed light on how poor the disease management is, and it can aid to identify the children that are at higher risk of forgetting, and behavioural trends associated with their activities and age.

InAGLobe Essay Series

We believe that creating awareness and with it a narrative regarding the key issues and topics related to that which we are trying to build is an imperative to our work!
