Digital Sustainability's curator insight, February 10, 6:10 AM

Here in the developed world, we take modern healthcare and all of the technology that supports it for granted, including the most basic of services, such as power and light.

But in the developing world, mothers and newborns can die during childbirth for lack of those simple services, even with the most skilled midwives or doctors attending them. In some areas, midwives have to resort to using candles, kerosene lanterns, or even the light from their cellphones, in order to illuminate the birthing room or medical clinic, which is far from optimal when dealing with issues of life and death.

Thanks to the work of Dr. Laura Stachel and her husband Hal Aronson, there’s a simple and effective solution to reducing maternal and infant mortality in childbirth, and it all fits inside a suitcase that can go wherever it’s needed.

“Dr. Laura Stachel went to Northern Nigeria in 2008 to study ways to lower maternal mortality in state hositals. She witnessed deplorable conditions in state facilities including sporadic electricity that impaired maternity and surgical care. Without a reliable source of electricity, nighttime deliveries were attended in near darkness, cesarean sections were cancelled or conducted by flashlight, and critically ill patients waited hours or days for life-saving procedures. The outcomes were often tragic.” – WE CARE Solar

Stachel and Aronson co-founded a nonprofit, WE CARE Solar, in order to improve maternal and infant health outcomes in areas of the world without access to reliable electricity, and took on the challenge of developing a viable solution.
