Most of the effort to wipe malaria out of the third world meet water loo because the effect of the medication is short live and not effective. Most of the side effect of such medicine makes it very unpleasant for children. Ranging from gastric and indigestion problem to renal and liver complication for kids under 5 years of age. We seek to produce non oral alternative that can be worn as rubber band or ring and reacts from the skin. With control based on the ability of the users organ to manipulate the constituent chemicals that makes up the compound.
Previous research has shown that quinine can bind to elastomers or polymers. we want to use and experiment with other binders. This project mainly is to produce rubber rings and band that can help prevent malaria from affecting children in the developing world. The problem stalling the project has been bureaucratic bottle neck in securing funding from donor agencies, who spend 60% of their fund on administration. We plan to harness affiliation from scientific, pharmaceutical and educational organization and governments. So 1000 kids dying every week can be reduced by our collective effort who have global conscience that the world should be a better place for all of us.
