Two of their most impactful, ultra-low-cost medical innovations are:
1. The “Every Second Matters for Mothers and Babies™ - Newborn and Infant Respiratory Bundle (ESM - NIRB)”: A specially designed healthcare kit designed to save newborns from preventable respiratory distress deaths which includes breathing equipment and apparatus, checklists, training manuals, and wall charts.
2. The “Every Second Matters for Mother and Babies – Uterine Balloon Tamponade (ESM-UBT)”: An easy to use, safe, and highly cost-effective package that provides training for medical personnel in partnering countries and a uterine balloon device that can be used to avert postpartum hemorrhage.
With a volunteer-filled staff and virtually no overhead costs, the organization is a highly efficient charity that is able to utilize close to 100 percent of contributions to directly help people in need.
“The new website highlights some of the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges and explains the low-cost innovations we are bringing to market to help solve them,” Dr. Thomas F. Burke, Ujenzi Chairman, founder, and Chief of the Division of Global Health and Human Rights at Massachusetts General Hospital, said. “As our organization continues to grow, this new site will make it easier for donors to see the great human impact of their contributions.”
