Oxford App To Save Babies Lives
A smartphone app designed to help reduce the deaths of babies in Africa is just short of it's online crowdfunding target.
More than £50,000 has been pledged but if the team don't raise that to £60,000 - they can't collect any of the total.
470,000 babies die on the day they're born every year in Africa.
LIFE - Life-saving Instruction For Emergencies was developed by doctors in Kenya and Oxford to provide vital emergency care training to African healthcare workers.
The project aims to address the avoidable tragedy of newborn deaths by using low-cost smartphones to give as many healthcare workers as possible the knowledge they need to provide life-saving treatment to newborns.
Dr Chris Paton is part of the research team at Oxford, he tells Heart "now that people have smartphones it seems like we've really got to do something to train workers - so they're able to save lives".
You can help the team hit their fundraising target. There's more information here.
