Mothers’ milk pasteurization for Bangladesh garment workers
Description: Read Micaela Collins' blog post about this project: http://ow.ly/QkNMd Through this project, mothers working in Bangladesh garment factories will receive access to breast pumps and a low-cost way to extend the shelf life of expressed breast milk. The technique uses an alternative heating medium, minimizing the amount of water and energy normally needed for pasteurization but effectively killing bacteria and viruses while leaving nutrient content largely intact and extending shelf life. The results offer major benefits for the workers, their babies and employers alike, among them improved infant nutrition, reduced absenteeism due to child illnesses and less expense for baby formula. Using existing factory clinics to promote long-term sustainability, the project can be scaled up in Bangladesh and other low- and middle-income countries. This project is a recipient of the Stars in Global Health Phase I award.

Interview with Farrah Mateen - A Smartphone EEG to Diagnose Seizure Disorders in Bhutan
Description: Epilepsy affects 1 in 100 people — 65 million worldwide, an estimated 80 to 90% of them in developing countries, of which at least 60% go untreated. The high incidence of epilepsy in developing countries is attributed to higher rates of head injuries and certain infections, including cerebral malaria. This new screening app, a $300 device, could dramatically raise the global level of diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy. University of Ottawa-based researchers will pioneer tests of the technology in Bhutan, a small South Asian kingdom at the rugged eastern end of the Himalayas, landlocked between India, Nepal and China.

Interview with Audra Renyi - Helping People with Hearing Loss in Developing World
Description: More than 360 million people, about 10% of them children, are unable to understand speech in most contexts due to hearing loss. Most people disabled by hearing loss live in low- and middle-income countries, where audiologists are rare and help inaccessible due to distance and the cost of hearing aids. Canadian not-for-profit World Wide Hearing Foundation International (World Wide Hearing) will develop a hearing loss diagnostic kit for use by rural healthcare workers, and a newly created Canadian company, Hearing Access World, will screen and quickly equip people in need with high-quality hearing aids at a fraction of the usual $2,000 to $3,000 cost.
