Project detailsIn 2016, it was estimated that over 2.6 million refugees live in camps for over 5 years. In this context, they depend on humanitarian organizations for shelter, sanitary facilities, and more, services which can be expensive and often harmful to the environment. In this context, KOIS delivered a feasibility study to demonstrate the potential of setting up a multi-hundred million dollars leasing facility for the humanitarian sector with a primary focus on solar energy.
Designing better and more sustainable solutions for the humanitarian sector

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.
