The consequences are fatal, with infectious diarrhoea causing around 2.2 million deaths every year, most of which are children under the age of five from countries like Kenya and India.
Students in McGill University’s International Masters for Health Leadership (IMHL) program -- Drs. Padma Venkat, Caroline Kisia and Ahmad Firas Khalid -- are pleased to announce that a low-cost copper device, which has been proven in the lab to kill deadly water-borne pathogens, will be field-tested in poor urban and rural households in India and Kenya with a $100,000 Grand Challenges Canada (GCC) Phase I Proof-of-Concept Grant as part of the 2013 Global Health Stars.
