Goal 3: to promote and improve good health.

Aims to reduce lack of precise medication management in multiple clinical conditions that require vasopressors, magnesium sulfate, pitocin, quinine, and others. Allows lightly trained healthcare workers to administer a wide variety of medication safely even without infusion pumps. One health target is to improve treatment for eclampsia and post partum hemorrhage, which can potentially save hundreds of thousands of lives a year. Also aims to improve pediatric health and cancer treatment. ^(Interview with representative)
