Health is a basic human right. The inequity in access to healthcare and health outcomes for the world's most underserved populations is unjust and unsustainable. Resolution Fellows are implementing innovative technologies to develop creative approaches to promote public health and help bridge this unacceptable divide.

Well for Wellbeing

Presently, there is no source of clean water is available within the community of Las Macias, Teustepe, Boaco, Nicaragua.  Water from an open well must be carried over a mile to each home, taking time, leaving risk of contamination, and stressing the community and its health and wellness.  Marling and her team will create a well and water pumping system to provide clean, fresh water to each residents' home, combined with a community maintenance program.  This is an innovative approach to in-home plumbing through simple engineering and community engagement.

Marling Garcia

Marling Garcia is a passionate, dedicated, and enthusiastic student from Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, WI. She was born in the community of Las Macias, Teustepe, Boaco, Nicaragua. Since she was a child, she experienced the lack of clean, potable water needed to supply the basic needs in her home.  Due to that hardship, she always wanted to have a career and help her community. In 2013, she won a SEED scholarship to study Business Management for two years in the United States.

Revive

Because of China’s one-child policy, a large number of families in China have two parents, but only one child.  Sadly, in a large number of cases, this means that the loss of a child leaves grieving parents without a next generation, alongside the potential for significant additional psychological and emotional trauma.  Mojia’s venture will help provide social and psychological support for an initial group of 30 of the 900 such families in Qinhuangdao, China.

ShareHealth!

The ShareHealth! team, Rima-Maria Rahal, Zlatko Tadic, and Shubei Wang, have created a peer-to-peer module in which children in Ecuador and Ukraine learn about good dental health practices from children in Germany via fun instructional videos, and then receive donated oral health kits to follow through on those lessons.
