(Notas de Prensa) These emergency ophthalmological units shall be distributed from its new assembly plants in Singapore and the Brazilian port city, Santos.
These units are made of fully-equipped modules, capable of providing first aid and basic specialized medical services anywhere the container is transported and installed.
Each year in Southeast Asia, more than five million children suffer from cornea and conjunctiva alterations brought on by hunger, misery and vitamin A deficient diets. These pathologies are also common in Africa and Latin America. More than 500,000 children end up blind each year as a consequence of these disorders. 124 million children worldwide fail to get a sufficient amount of vitamin A from their diets. If the amount of vitamin A in baby food were to increase, between one and two million deaths of children less than four-years-old could be avoided annually.
The modules are fully furnished to operate with complete independence, including in areas lacking any type of infrastructure. In addition to medical emergencies, these containers can attend to specialized sectors such as electromedicine, ophthalmology, dentistry and obstetrics. Furthermore, these also include dispensers supplying sanitary consumables such as serums, syringes, clamps, pharmaceutical material, etc.
These units are rounded off with the production mini-plants, which are containers fully equipped to furnish basic goods and services of all types: food, drinking water, footwear, clothing, etc. Similar to the emergency medical units, each container includes machines, wiring, piping and installations necessary to operate independently.
The emergency units and the mini-plants shall operate hooked up to the Scinet Corporation’s World Trade System, a global database bearing access to 60 million references for commodities, raw materials, goods and services, through direct operations and digital exchange certificates.
“Seven out of ten child deaths in developing countries could be prevented by merely providing certain vitamins or vaccines“, points out Elizabeth Mamontoff, vice president of Scinet Corporation. “Our emergency medical units will help alleviate this silent humanitarian catastrophe, which is happening every day, every minute, right before our very eyes.“
