Project Value 414 Million
Project Detail

The development objective of the Primary Health Care (PHC) Quality Improvement Program Project for Kyrgyz Republic is to contribute to improving the quality of primary health care services in the Kyrgyz Republic. The development of the program started in early 2017 and involved multiple consultations at the national and regional levels. Improved health outcomes and quality of services, reduced inequities in health outcomes and financial protection, and strengthened public health are some of the stated program goals. Four areas focusing on issues related to specific care include public health, primary care, hospital, and ambulance service. Based on the state program for health development (SPHD) 2030 vision, the program focuses on the following three areas identified as the key weaknesses in improving PHC quality and where the Bank’s engagement is likely to make a significant impact: result area 1, integrating sustainable quality improvement mechanisms into service delivery; result area 2, strengthening strategic purchasing for the quality of care; and result area 3, strengthening health sector stewardship and governance for quality improvement. The program is thus focusing on establishing and strengthening systems for quality of care monitoring, purchasing, and governance in order to build and strengthen foundations for sustainable systemwide quality improvement.

Portable solution for prehospital diagnosis of stroke in the ultra-acute phase
Company Name MEDFIELD DIAGNOSTICS AKTIEBOLAG
Funded By 38
Country Sweden , Western Europe
Project Value 71,429
Project Detail

This project will change the clinical landscape for the early and differential diagnosis of stroke – moving the diagnosis to the primary ambulance intervention site with the use of Strokefinder – an innovative medical diagnostic device based on microwave technology. Today, stroke is responsible for 405,000 deaths (9%) in men and 583,000 (13%) deaths in women each year. The projections indicate that between 2015 and 2035, overall there will be a 34% increase in total number of stroke events in the EU. Most strokes (87%) are ischaemic (caused by thrombosis or embolisms) and the rest (13%) are haemorrhagic (caused mainly by rupture of blood vessel or aneurysm). The complications of ischaemic strokes may be limited by early thrombolytic therapy (treatment to dissolve blood clots). However, while 20-30% of patients arriving at specialised stroke centres may receive thrombolytic therapy, only 3-4% of the patient population are given such treatment, mainly due to long lead times in transport to and from the diagnostic instruments (CT-scans). A haemorrhagic stroke (bleeding) excludes thrombolysis therapy until a proper diagnosis is performed. Medfield Diagnostics has developed a portable, more affordable and easy-to- use diagnostic device for this clinical dilemma. The device utilizes changes in the electromagnetic properties of the brain as a biomarker to exclude haemorrhagic stroke. After having provided proof-of- principle in smaller clinical trials and developed a robust prototype, the objective of the proposed project is to develop a business plan that will guide a large-scale prospective clinical trial to validate the device and optimize the go-to-market strategy. The goal is to make early stroke diagnostic and more effective personalized treatment accessible to a much wider population of patients across the EU.

Project Detail

Each year, stroke kills 6 million people worldwide and permanently disable another 5 million. The prognosis is defined by the extent of the stroke, along with the rapidity by which it is identified and treated. Current diagnostic imaging, MRI and CT, require specialized centers and time. Even though ultrasound could provide a rapid and portable diagnostic tool, it is currently constrained by diffraction, which yield a theoretically incompressible compromise between the penetration in depth and through the skull with respect to the minimum detectable vessel size. We have recently demonstrated that the diffraction limit in ultrasound imaging can be surpassed in the rat brain in-vivo [Errico et al. Nature 2015]. Inspired by FPALM, Ultrafast Ultrasound Localization Microscopy (uULM) can reach resolutions of a tenth of the wavelength, in-depth with a clinical contrast agent and scanner. It is now possible to use lower ultrasound frequencies, which easily penetrate the skull and travel deep into tissue, to observe vessels at the micron-scale. In the context of stroke diagnosis, we propose to use uULM to reconstruct the entire human brain vasculature, within a few minutes, with a portable ultrasound system positioned on the patient’s head. First, the project ResolveStroke proposes to develop an animal trans-skull vascular scanner to define biomarkers linked to stroke. 3D mapping at the capillary scale will allow us define new anatomical and physiological biomarkers. Secondly, a human system will be built, initially fully-sampled but eventually smaller and portable. The last stage will consist in a proof-of-concept of the ultrasonic angiogram in patients with subacute ischemia. By saving previous time and, hence, brain tissue, we believe that a portable ultrasound system that could map the vascular structure of the human brain in intensive care units or even ambulances could have a profound impact on the management of stroke patients.

Project Detail

The hybrid MRV100 CNG system improves on existing generators by being both more efficient and cleaner. Similar in principle to cars such as the Toyota Prius, the hybrid power system for the food cart keeps its generator operating at its most efficient point. The new food cart system also has a solar panel to charge the battery and to minimize the CNG consumption. Over 50% of the time the generator is off and the cart operates silently on battery alone. By this way, this system, engineered specifically for mobile food vending, reduces generator noise by half and decreases climate change emissions by two-thirds. On the other hand, an alternative to idling using fossil fuels have been developed for ambulances. As these vehicles need to keep communications systems ready and medicine refrigerated at all the times, the alternative option to the fossil fuel consumption is to use grid electricity chargers. These chargers are fixed sidewalk access to grid electricity at designated parking spots.
