dc.description.abstract There is evidence for the need of a more economic needle remover to reduce the volume of sharps waste in third world countries and lead to safer practices with sharps disposal. I have developed a low cost device that can attach to globally disseminated safety boxes and remove needles from syringes reducing the volume of sharps and encouraging safe disposal practices. My plans for dissemination of this technology include applying for grant money from NCIIA and The Global Fund for the manufacturing and packaging of the device for dissemination through the World Health Organization (WHO) to hospitals and clinics with safety boxes to adhere the device and instruct healthcare workers how to use it. en
