Around the world, birth is a joyous occasion. Yet, every 11 seconds, a birth is a family tragedy due to the death of a mother or a child. Each year nearly four million newborns die during the first 4 weeks of life. Bangladesh is among the top ten countries with the highest burdens of newborn deaths in the world due to a shortage of proper healthcare. A huge proportion of these premature deaths can be prevented with access to proper healthcare technologies such as incubators. We aim to create low cost, easy to assemble incubators for regions with limited access to healthcare technology by creating an easily accessible well-regulated thermal environment for neonatal survival. Our solution is also in line with MDG 4, 5 and SDG 3, 9 and 10 giving newborns all around the world a chance to fight for their lives.
