The radically simple Uniject™ injection system
Rethinking the needle to extend the reach of lifesaving vaccines and medications
What if syringes were so easy to use that even untrained health workers could give injections without the risk of error?
What if vaccines for developing countries could be prepackaged in low-cost prefilled syringes, vastly reducing the amount of vaccine wasted?
What if syringes could not be reused—and we knew for certain that gateway to HIV transmission was closed?
The Uniject™ autodisable injection system (Uniject), born in PATH’s Seattle shop, is little more than a small bubble of plastic attached to a needle, but it answers all these needs. It is so simple that health workers can learn to use it after less than two hours of training. It cannot be reused, which eliminates one route of disease transmission. And it is precisely prefilled by the pharmaceutical producers with a single dose, which ensures that the correct amount of drug is delivered and that none is discarded unnecessarily.
PATH developed Uniject with funding from the US Agency for International Development and then licensed the system to BD, the largest syringe manufacturer in the world. As part of the licensing agreement, BD supplies the Uniject system to pharmaceutical producers at preferential prices for use in developing-country programs. Developing Uniject and bringing it to market has been a 20-year endeavor.
Originally developed for use with vaccines, Uniject now promises to extend the reach of other lifesaving drugs as well as contraception.
Uniject is a trademark of BD.
This is wonderful.
Someone definitely got this from Robocop 2. This is literally the first step to a military dictatorship and gangs running the world
//ok I wasn’t going to re blog any of this yahoo shit but fuck man! What the hell is this? These assholes honestly think they can just do this? I honestly just feel like posting and re-blogging every single thing I can find having to do with a fandom.
Are you freaking kidding me?!
I think they’re joking.
hell no we won’t go! hell no we won’t go!
I THOUGHT TODAY WOULD BE SADDER THAN THIS
oh my fucking god you people are so fucking gullible
too bad this isn’t actually happening
i see nothing has changed in the weekend ive been gone
NOW I’M REALLY SCARED, WHAT’S HAPPENING I THOUGHT WE WERE OKAY
WHAT THE FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK
I wish some of my guy friends would at least acknowledge that three different cars full of men just screamed “How much?” ”Hop in the car, baby” and “Fuck you, slut” at me in the last 10 minutes. Nope, we’re just gonna continue walking without saying anything? Ok.
Most intelligent guys wouldn’t say anything because we know how those type of guys operate. If we were to say anything to them they would most likely try to start shit which would put you, and ourselves, at risk of physical harm.
These people were in cars…driving…away from us. It would be ridiculous of me to expect my friends to say anything to these men (what are they going to do, chase their cars?), and that was not what I desired. I said that I wished my guy friends would acknowledge that it had happened. I know their behavior is unacceptable, but it would be nice to know that those around me feel the same way. Without acknowledging it I feel like its being understood as ‘not a big deal’ when it is. I don’t like to think that the reason some men say that street harassment isn’t happening is because they ignore it, like my friends did. I imagine I’d feel far more comfortable if my friends would actively support me, even if its just saying something like, “Don’t worry about those guys. I gotchoo!” and moving on.
The situation is terrifying for both the woman who suffer and the men who are trying to support. Obviously it’s a lot worse for the woman because it’s something they have to endure everyday, but how do you rationalize with a man acts irrationally to begin with. Regardless, they should have said something and supported you, or tried to comfort you. Anytime I’m put in a situation where I have to tell a guy to fuck off or try to defend someone I get a pit in my stomach and usually take off my glasses in preparation of getting punched in the face, but oddly enough it always works out for me and the asshole backs down and I feel a lot better for it. Anyway, I’m sorry that you had to deal with that and that you have to deal with that. The best advice I can give is call your guy friends out for not sticking up for you and tell them you want them to do that for you. NOT BECAUSE YOU CAN’T HELP YOURSELF, but because you want the support and validation that you have friends that care for you.
– The Wretched of the Earth: [TW: rape] On Rape Culture (via excrutiate)
Gentlemen. This is what rape culture is like:
Imagine you have a Rolex watch. Nice fancy Rolex, you bought it because you like the way it looks and you wanted to treat yourself. And then you get beaten and mugged and your Rolex is stolen. So you go to the police. Only, instead of investigating the crime, the police want to know why you were wearing a Rolex instead of a regular watch. Have you ever given a Rolex to anyone else? Is it possible you wanted to be mugged? Why didn’t you wear long sleeves to cover up the Rolex if you didn’t want to be mugged?
And then after that, everywhere you go, there are constant jokes about stealing your Rolex. People you don’t even know whistle at your Rolex and make jokes about cutting your hand off to get it. The media doesn’t help either; it portrays people who wear Rolexes as flamboyant assholes who secretly just want someone to come along and take that Rolex off their hands. When damn, all you wanted was to wear a nice watch without getting harassed for it. When you complain that you are starting to feel unsafe, people laugh you off and say that you are too uptight. Never mind you got violently attacked for the crime of wearing a friggin time piece.
Imagining all that? It sucks, doesn’t it.
Now imagine you could never take the Rolex off.
