Innovation Description

Perinatal asphyxic encephalopathy (PAE) causes one million deaths and innumerable cases of cerebral palsy pa, Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) interventions, although proven and widely used in high-income economies (H-I), are not available in LM-I settings because of the high unit cost ($3K - $25Kt), or even if they are available in hospitals are inaccessible: huge numbers of PAE newborns die due to the impossibility of transporting babies to hospital before the 6 hrs therapeutic window closes.
