One of These World-Changing Ideas Is About To Be Worth $100 Million

360˚ Institute for Global Health The 360˚ Institute for Global Health from Rice University focus on the need for better care of newborns in third world countries, where basic health care is scarce. Their goal is to reduce the high percentage of preterm deaths of infants and provide them with accessible care for complications of labor and delivery, infections, conditions—such as jaundice—and making sure infants can breathe properly.

Rice plans to develop a set of Newborn Essential Solutions and Technologies (NEST) as high quality and effective as those in better equipped and highly resourced settings. Additionally, Rice presented the MacArthur Foundation with their goal to establish an educational template to shape the next generation of healthcare providers and entrepreneurs. Through this initiative, Rice will prevent 85 percent of neonatal deaths in Malawi.
