These are the kind of innovations that are going to change the face of society. Millions suffer from infectious diseases ( more than 25% of total deaths annually). The barriers to heath care for all are obvious and more glaring in resource poor settings and geographical clusters of isolation like war ravaged lands, military ruled countries like Burma where there is high burden of MDR TB. This innovation is just the right stimulus needed to tame the diseases and bring health care to the poorest of the poor and marginalized people across the globe.
