miDiagnostics: creating the future of diagnostic care

Today, ensuring a fast diagnosis of the high number of patients to avoid transmission is critical. Unfortunately, diagnoses are highly time-consuming and hard to get for people in more remote areas. In fact, most accurate diagnostics require drawing blood, sample preparation & lab work. This can result in a long time between testing & treatment. It also means patients cannot be followed-up at home and that carrying out fast & accurate testing in the field is very difficult.

Preventing family separation in Indonesia

In Indonesia, approximately 2.15M children live without their parents. Yet, 90% of them have at least one parent alive. The underlying reasons are numerous and complex, but they mostly relate to poverty and lack of access to social assistance.

A Development Impact Bond could help bring a solution to this issue. In this scope, KOIS supported two foundations with the structuring of a DIB to test an innovative, cost-efficient and scalable model of family separation prevention.
