Hepatitis C has become a silent epidemic spreading across rural Punjab, India. However, adoption of its treatment has been woefully inadequate and slow. A collaboration between Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories and Treemouse Research & Design, the project decodes the dynamics of Hepatitis-C in rural Punjab & devises a financing system that would reduce the perceived cost of treatment.

BANDICOOT – MANHOLE CLEANING ROBOT

The ‘Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act, 2013’, recognises manual cleaning of sewers as a dehumanising practise arising from the continuing existence of insanitary latrines and a highly iniquitous caste system. Four young replaced manual scavengers with robots in manholes. They kept the technology simple so that anyone can operate the Bandicoot with a little training.
