Medicine Mondiale is an Auckland based social enterprise - committed to inventing and making products which improve healthcare outcomes for all the people of our world.
Why do you exist?
We exist because we want to allow all the world's people to have access to affordable quality healthcare. Ninety percent of the world's healthcare spending is spent on the ten percent of people who live in developing countries.
With your help we can change this.
What do you do?
We develop disruptive technologies and products which make modern healthcare accessible to the poorest of the poor.
Our inventions and strategies have Global reach from low cost nutritional products which may have a positive impact on a billion children by year 2030 to the introduction of low cost infant incubators specifically designed to work in the harshest environments and which can give thousands of infants the gift of life.
How can we help?
We set highly focused achievable goals and right now we are focusing on getting our low cost incubator into production by Christmas 2015.
It costs only $2,000 compared to a traditional neonatal incubator which costs about $35,000 and is guaranteed to work for at least ten years without servicing.
In developing countries – due to the mother's poor nutritional status many babies are born with a very low birth weight,often weighing less than 1000 grams. These babies can fit in the palm of your hand and need intensive care in an incubator for the first few weeks of their fragile lives. Sadly there are not enough working incubators in the developing world and babies die.
You can help by getting as many of your friends as possible to sign up to the One Percent Collective and together get Mondiale Lifepods into production and start saving little lives. Each incubator can save at least 500 little lives.
Thanks for helping us make the world a better place than when we found it.
