The reuse of medical syringes in developing countries is increasing the spread of ailments like HIV, hepatitis and others, so the Single-Use Aid Project is designed to put a stop to it. Created by Horacio M. Pace Bedetti, Carlos Paulino Montero and Andrés Conejero Rodilla, the Single-Use Aid Project is a non-reusable syringe that could be implemented in developing nations.

The Single-Use Aid Project features a disposable cardboard body and a sealed blister packet filled with the medication. When they are paired, the medical syringe makes administering medication easier and renders the equipment as waste rather than allowing for reuse.

The Single-Use Aid Project could help to revolutionize how healthcare industry packaging is created to help make it even healthier and more streamlined.
