Designing and Delivering Medical Devices to Help Every Newborn, Everywhere Survive and Thrive
Newborn conditions are now the leading cause of death in low- and middle-income countries. Most of these deaths could be prevented with access to newborn care technologies routinely used in community hospitals in high-income countries. In this talk, Professor Rebecca Richards-Kortum will describe how engineers can build global coalitions with clinicians and public health professionals to design and deliver robust and affordable solutions to help every newborn survive and thrive.
