Why We DoWhat We Do

Uganda and Sub-Saharan Africa is home to several innovations and businesses however it has been notably documented that most of these die in infancy due to lack of support and no clear cut processes/system/pathway from idea to market. (https://www.bbc.com/news/av/business-37654937)

As PUMZI DEVICES, with key focus on Emergency Care, our aim is to simplify and exemplify the Medical Device Innovation Pathway from the ideation stage to the market thus allowing for local and context specific innovations to make tremendous leaps in transforming the health care sector in Africa.

Delegates to the 72nd World Health Assembly,WHO’s supreme decision-making body, adopted a resolution on emergency and trauma care aimed at helping countries to ensure timely care for the acutely ill and injured. It is estimated that more than half of deaths in low- and middle-income countries result from conditions that could be treated with prehospital and emergency care, including injuries; infections; acute exacerbations of cancer, diabetes and other noncommunicable diseases; and complications of pregnancy. Effective emergency care systems save lives. (https://www.who.int/news/item/27-05-2019-72nd-world-health-assembly-adopts-resolution-on-emergency-and-trauma-care)
