Point of Care Viral Hepatitis Device

March 2018, Ghana

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 becoming 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 before death, and up to 80% for Hepatitis C. With rapid diagnostic tests being convenient yet not of ideal 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.


Groundwater Treatment

Status: UnAdopted

Water in rural Mozambique has often harmful levels of calcium and magnesium. Make a device that can make water more potable.
