By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1,000 live births and under-5 mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1,000 live births.

ABOUT AERO THERAPEUTICS
We help physicians in low-resource settings treat neonatal respiratory issues with our sustainable, rugged and affordable devices.
Our current device oxygenates, warms, humidifies, and sterilizes air before it is delivered in a single, compact, and mobile enclosure.
Developed iteratively in Ethiopia, our final prototype demonstrates comparable performance with commercially available devices at ~1/10th the cost.
