    Design for the Majority
    Improving Healthcare in Rural China
    March 3rd, 2010
    Chris Driscoll | NourDiabYunes| Katherine Lee
  • 2. The case
    Rates of breast cancer in China are now as low as 12.8/100,000 women
    The Journal of the National Cancer Institute predicts that 100/100,000 of women aged 55-69 by 2021
    This trend is attributed to poor diet, increased exposure to pollution, and growing use of alcohol and tobacco products
  • 3. Our goals
    Education
    Raise awareness of the conditions and causes of breast cancer
    Prevention
    Offer resources for prevention and early diagnosis
    Support
    Provide a community or support system for patients and families dealing with breast cancer
  • 4. Research findings
    Lack of information in rural areas on this and other healthcare issues
    BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation gives a high correlation with breast cancer sufferers
    Lifestyle and diet closely linked
    Self breast exams, x-ray/digital mammography, MRI routine for identification and treatment

    Palatable approach to promoting healthful diet/lifestyle habits within the financial constraints of the target market
    Development of low-cost screening options and access infrastructure for rural communities
  • 13. Questions for SIVA
    What regulatory barriers do we face in developing novel medical devices for rural populations?
    What are current methods for large public information campaigns? What is the cheapest and most surefire way of reaching people in rural areas?
    What is the power of evoking filial piety to solicit community contributions for local healthcare solutions?
