Mission: 20 million premature and low-birth-weight (LBW) babies are born every year, primarily in developing countries. Due to a lack of resources, 3.5 million of LBW babies die each year, and those that do survive growup with severe health problems. Most of these deaths are avoidable, and can be prevented with an incubator that regulates a baby?s body temperature. However, traditional incubators cost up to $20,000 dollars, and are available only in urban hospitals. Most rural parents cannot afford to get their babies to these hospitals; theirbabies are often left to die without access to appropriate medical care.
