Integrating infant feeding counselling with psychosocial stimulation to improve child growth and development in urban slum of Bangladesh
International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh
BangladeshBangladeshMrsGulshanAragulshan.ara@icddrb.org
Undernutrition and poor cognitive development affect many children under 5 in developing countries. It is vital that combinations of programs that can simultaneously address both problems are needed. Therefore, we will integrate feeding counselling along with psychosocial stimulation starting in pregnancy and till 12 months post-partum to improve child nutrition and development.

Mother's Milk: Breast Milk Pasteurization for RMG Factory Workers in Bangladesh
International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh
BangladeshBangladeshDrSabrinaRasheedcollins.micaela@gmail.com
No mother should feel they have to choose between earning a living and giving their infant children the nutrition they need. Equipping factory clinics with our novel breast milk pasteurization device will allow Bangladeshi garment factory workers to provide their infants with breast milk while away from home. Our bold idea was developed by four U of T students & will be implemented in collaboration with ICDDR,B.

Safe Water FlowH2O4ALLCanadaUgandaMrTimothyMuttootimbmuttoo@h2o4all.org
A ground-breaking water purification device that powers itself by producing electricity from any source of flowing water has been created through a partnership between H2O4ALL and Formarum, a Canadian engineering company. Based on conventional copper-silver ionization, the technology needs no external power source and can automatically adjust the disinfection rate required - both features being of great importance in regions lacking reliable electricity sources and technical expertise. The technology can also develop economic growth within communities by creating power for other essential needs.

Commmunity Participation for the simultaneous reduction of malaria and dengue mosquitoes in Sayaxche, Guatemala
Laurentian University of Sudbury
CanadaGuatemalaDrGerardUlibarrigulibarri@laurentian.ca
In many countries, mosquito transmitted diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, devastate communities economically, if you are sick, you cannot earn a salary. Government programs are effective on reducing mosquitoes as long as they are continuously implemented. Active Community participation and organization should give sustainability to reduction of disease transmission.

Our goal is to make vaccines stable with temperature, allowing their distribution around the world without refrigeration. We will use a polysaccharide (sugar) material to entrap the vaccines in a solid film, providing stability. The film can be re-dissolved in a matter of seconds simply by adding water before use.

CanadaBangladeshProfYu-LingChengyuling.cheng@utoronto.ca
Rainwater harvestation is commonly used around the world to address potable water scarcity. However, rainwater is often contaminated during collection and microbes proliferate during the often-long storage periods causing health problems for millions. We will develop a set of simple interventions that minimize bacterial proliferation during storage and treat the water prior to use.

Recruiting pastoralists to find and treat dry-season water bodies with larvicides to control mosquito-borne diseases

MrDicksonLwetoijeradwilson@ihi.or.tzThomasMascaritmascari@ihi.or.tz
During dry season, mosquito breeding habitats are few and permanent, and pastoralists always search for these habitats for watering their cows. We propose using pastoralist’s knowledge to find and treat the breeding habitats with a larvicide, pyriproxyfen during dry season. This guarantees practical and cost-effective way of controlling malaria vectors.

Outbreaks of diarrhea are closely related to abundance of houseflies. The problem is faced by a majority residing in areas characterized with poor sanitation and hygiene. We aim, to develop and characterize a new “attracting and killing” fly-trap for control of houseflies. Our simple technology will self-sustain through revenue from mobile phone adverts put on the fly-traps.

In Tanzania, similar to other developing countries, chicken feathers are a waste by-product of food production and usually get thrown away. In most cases an improper disposal. Using research and development, we propose to turn chicken feathers into something valuable in the fight against malaria, that is, a mosquito net.
