What has been the impact of your solution to date?
We have had a double-digit reduction in frequent hospitalization of infant born through CS in the past months following our brief interventions
What is your projected impact over the next five years?
We foresee a tremendous increase rate of growth and nutritional status in infants born in rural areas
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
The only barrier might be finance and accessibility to the rural areas, because we fully focus on them. Another barrier might be communication and translating of crucial documents into native languages. So we are looking at co-opting natives into our group on that basis. as for the finances, we hope on the kind gestures of supporters
