I’m writing to tell you about Project SEARCH, being run by Dr. Christopher Gill and a team of public health and engineering students at Boston University. They are trying to solve one of the fundamental problems in global public health: identification of children over Space and Time. Their approach is clever and simple: they are developing an iPho
ne app that identifies young children based on photographs of their ears. A tool like this could really make a difference in our efforts to support vaccine programs, HIV care, nutritional campaigns, and other efforts helping children in poorer countries.
I hope you will join me in supporting their work so that all children can live long and prosper!
You have my thanks.
