A Low-Cost Syringe That Can’t Be Used Twice

A Low-Cost Syringe That Can’t Be Used Twice

The reuse of syringes is all too common in under-funded clinics worldwide. 1.3 million people per year die as a result of unsafe injections, the main reasons being HIV and Hepatitis B and C infections. To solve this problem, Marc Koska invented a low-cost syringe that can’t be used twice.
