PATH Disposable Syringe Jet Injector (DSJI)
DSJI ensures primary immunization from infections using needle-free injections for developing countries.
The PATH disposable-syringe jet injector (DSJI) is a sterile needle-free device that uses a single-dose syringe and a pressurized liquid stream rather than a needle to penetrate through the skin and deliver injections to the intradermal, subcutaneous, or intramuscular tissues. The PATH DSJI aims to reduce needle reuse and the associated disease spread due to shortages of sterile needles and trained lab workers. An estimated 23.5 million new HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C infections occur every year through needle reuse and accidental needle stick injuries.

Goal 3: Good health and well-being
Health care professionals in low resource settings administering vaccines or essential medicines
The process of delivering medicines and vaccines in primitive and culminates infections or contamination. However, newer technological advances like needle-free jet injection have the potential to improve safety by eliminating needles from the process of administering vaccines. Jet injectors create a fine stream of pressurized liquid that penetrates the skin, delivering doses of medications and vaccines while reducing hazardous waste. The potential benefits of jet injectors include more consistent delivery, reduced vaccine wastage, elimination of the need to transport large volumes of needles, and reduction of the risk of needle sticks and of the costs associated with sharp waste.
