The Business of Saving Lives: Innovation, Implementation and Scale-up with Jane Chen

From the design phase of the life-saving technology to its adoption and distribution stage, Chen explains how the Embrace Infant Warmer is helping babies and their mothers in countries including India, China, Somalia, Zambia, Uganda, Mexico, Guatemala and soon Afghanistan.
