Project Dose

A winning 2012 Ideas that Matter project, Project Dose is a program which addresses the issue of improper medication delivery affecting millions of sick children in developing countries.

Developed by Bao Design Lab in collaboration with Ugandan partner Technology for Tomorrow, the project uses a prototype-based system to enable nurses, pharmacists and parents to safely and reliably divide and re-package adult tablets into smaller doses for children. As a result, this program is providing children with the dosage they need to stay protected from life-threatening diseases such as malaria and HIV infection.
