On Tuesday 24th October, Stephen and Claire attended AidEx 2012 at Brussels Expo. It was great to see all the ingenious products and wonderful work that other organisations are undertaking.
We spoke to representatives from Medicines Sans Frontiers about their use previous of regular pillboxes, as well as suppliers to clinics in Sub Saharan Africa, pharmaceutical export companies, DFID, the business development director at UK Trade & Investment and many other interesting individuals about the MedAlert project.
We were delighted and encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response that the concept generated, and have received some excellent advice for the next stages of product development as well as some valuable contacts.
This years’ Aid Innovation Challenge competition had some great entries, including a folding tap stand, a water filter bag, and a tiny solar-powered LED light.
Congratulations to Sunlite, whose Portable Solar Led Lantern was named the winning design.
