Single-Use Aid project was presented this year with the aim to solve the problems arising from the reuse of syringes. According to the SafePoint Organization there are countries where unsafe injections can be of the 70%. This factor is causing the spread of HIV, hepatitis and other diseases.
The problem of syringe reuse is caused by the high production costs of both syringes and medical treatment containers, which are not affordable for many of the poor areas of the world. Also, syringe recycling is a complicated process, various plastics to be disinfected with meticulous care and processed for recycling. Thus in some areas of the world, people prefer to clean and reuse and not recycled.

The single use aid is a non-reusable syringe, it comprising a disposable cardboard body and a sealed blister medication with an attached needle. This device makes impossible to reuse the syringe once it has been used. The production of this syringe requires less parts and processes and materials used are more affordable.
This solution could help to solve the problem of diseases spreading related with the reuse of syringes, offering a cheaper solution to countries with low economic resources and high poverty levels This project was presented to SafePoint organization with the goal of helping the cause of diseases spread for this problem.
