Finalist Best Ideas Youth C

Explain your idea in details:

One of the major global health threats includes antimicrobial resistance. According to WHO report (2016) Antimicrobial Resistance could kill 10 milion milion people each year by 2050 unless proper measures are taken. Bacterial resistance against drugs being among the contributor of Antimicrobial Resistance, also need urgent measures. This project idea aims to fight against bacterial resistance results from inadequate laboratory diagnosis. It specifically targets rural areas where there is lack of Laboratory diagnosis. It mainly focuses on laboratory disease diagnosis, providing advices in medication and antimicrobial sensitivity tests. In Tanzania, most of interior parts lacks laboratory diagnosis, hence medication based only to clinical history which contribute to AMR. To overcome the situation, we will visit health Centre to provide laboratory diagnosis service The organization will be focusing on elimination of Microbial resistance to drugs which weaken production activity. Generally, the project idea targets to reduce the effect of Antimicrobial Resistance through one health approach.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The project aims to reduce the effect of Antimicrobial Resistance in Tanzania Outcomes over 3 months 1. To raise awareness among the people about AMR 2. Visiting 10 health centers for laboratory diagnosis Outcomes over 3 years 1. Increased awareness on the importance of Laboratory diagnosis before medication 2. To reach 60 health Centre for laboratory diagnosis services Outcomes over 5 years 1. Reduce AMR by 2.5% in Tanzania Establish molecular section for processing Molecular samples This project idea mainly targets local area where laboratory diagnosis are very limited, hence medication based only in clinical history of the patients which contribute to antimicrobial resistance. In evaluating our success, our team will conduct surveys direct to patients and in health cares centres. Generally, this project Idea aims to achieve Sustainable Development Goals number ( No poverty) through reducing costs associated with reinfections. Also, sustainable development goal number three ( Good health and well being) through promoting laboratory diagnosis pre medication.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

This project idea aims to establish online platform which will provide awareness among stakeholders as well as visting health centres over a year. The project Idea will create its revenue through small contribution made by patients who need our services, online visting, seeking funds and donation as well as through establishing min project such as medical laboratory services and pharmaceutical dispensing (5 years later). Sources of funds are family and friends loans, grants and bank loans. This project idea will run in collaboration with the central government ( Ministry of health), local government, Sokoine University of Agriculture, investors and donors. The project idea will be long runing due to the its good management, establishment of medical laboratory services and pharmaceutical dispensing.

Your profile

I am Frank Damas Masinde a Tanzanian aged 27 years old. I hold Bachelor of science in Biotechnology and laboratory sciences. I conducted a min research at Ukerewe to find a reason for reinfection some diseases and found that among the reason antimicrobial resistance was the major cause. Based on this findings I came up with an Idea to establish the mobile diagnosis centre to fight against bacterial resistance against drugs. I am passionate in helping the society and very encouraged on using my professional knowledge to help people which make me struggle for any opportunity to fullfill my passion. My achievement includes being a third prize winner at citzen entrepreneurship campus best Idea competition youth category (2021), Certificate of honerable mention by Heartifulness organization in the heartifulness essay event (2021), top 20 Finalist in the National competition on science, technology and innovation (MAKISATU 2022), certificate of participation in youth essay competition 2021 by Goi peace foundation and certificate of leadership by global leadership summit. My strong leadership in the young scientist association at Mbeya university of science and technology wen I was pursuing ordinary diploma made me being passionate to transform the society through my expertise. I spend much of time reading books concerning health, innovation, finance, social well being and entrepreneurships which grows my skills.

This would be a major step toward the positive direction in the field of medicinal science.

I believe that with the world done in this project, we would be able to find curr to certain debilitating diseases that has claimed, and is at the verge of claiming millions of lives globally.

This is a great idea. In our world there are a lot of problems that are vital to solve. And every year the number becomes bigger. And i'm glad that there are people who are making a difference. Spreading information and finding solutions is essential. Hopefully, one day we'll live on a safer planet.

Thank you madam for your advice. One of our objective is provision of education on Microbial drug resistance to the community through online platforms and attending hospitals and centre, to ensure people get the required knowledge on Antimicrobial Resistance.

I have taken some time to pass through the idea. It is a good idea but it could be better if you will start providing education to the people. Most of people are un aware of AMR's. This could be a starting point for implementation of your project idea. congratulations and all the best in your future

Congratulations for your innovative way of
addressing social problems. Currently, microbial resistance is a global threat. Solutions aiming in eliminating this problem are encouraged. But I recommend provision of awareness to the communit, people should be aware about this problem pre services. All the best Frank

Hello Frank, I like your idea of how your Medical laboratory testing is accessible, it plays a crucial role in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease in patients. If a patient routinely submits to lab testing, this may allow doctors to respond swiftly with preventative treatment, which could save the patient time, money, and possibly sickness in the future. Lets support each other. Check me out:

Good idea Mr Frank this will open the mind of our society on proper Use of antibiotics
Reduces cost due to multdrug resistance. Keep it up i wish donors to fund this project for the societal betterment

Good idea
Antimicrobial resistance is a global health threat.
Innovation like this are in need to combat the problem.
The problem in our community, there is the lack of knowledge about bacterial resistance. You need to more effort in it. Otherwise I wish you all the best

Thank you Reuben

The topic bacteria resistance against drugs refers to the tendency where drugs fail to cure a particular disease. Despite of many reason for antimicrobial resistance, medication based only in clinical history has a major contribution to the problem. The Idea aims to provide the awareness to the community and provide laboratory diagnosis ( Antimicrobial sensitivity tests) which determine the appropriate drugs rather than doing human experimentation.

The emergence of bacterial resistance to drugs (antibacterials) is really threat in world, however most of our communities don't have any idea on that catastrophe and its impacts especially those from remote areas..congratulations for that brilliant idea and wish you luck.

August 10, 2022 11:50

I would like to know more about this topic, because I really did not know about it. Therefore, in addition to being a good initiative, it is innovative, at least in my personal opinion. Good luck and great job

Thank you Mr. Andrew, The centres will provide awareness among the stakeholders prior the provision of Antimicrobial susceptibility test. Also, our team will be visting patients and healthcare centres to individualize the service.

Bravo! Antimicrobial resistance against drugs now is threatening the life of both human and animals. Have laboratory based decisions to challenging diseases like Malaria in our African continent could be among the best approach. May the Heath projects funders and donors have a look on your idea. Wishes you success

Good idea, this will reduce poverty in our community. Although, more education is needed among the stakeholders because people are not aware how treatment without laboratory confirmation is dangerous for some diseases. Congratulations and all the best in your future.
