Problem

For hospitals in low-income countries, ongoing infrastructure challenges often prevent conventional medical equipment from functioning. For instance, steady electricity and compressed medical oxygen are needed to provide anesthesia and critical care, yet both are woefully scarce in health facilities throughout the developing world. Environmental conditions such as heat, humidity, and dust can also wear down equipment or limit its effectiveness.
