My son is grown now, but the memory of the exhausting, sleepless nights after we brought him home from the hospital always stays fresh. Like many new parents, we were nervous about everything.

As part of a new partnership with Tupperware Brands, Clubs de Niños y Niñas de Centro America (CNNCA) opened for its newest club in Zona 3 de Mixco, near Guatemala City, on May 26th.

Appropriate spaces are limited and expensive in Guatemala, especially in the city and its surrounding areas.  Most buildings that could properly house a club, similar to those in the US, could go for as much as five thousand dollars per month. Because of funding provided by Tupperware Brands, CNNCA was able to make this new club a reality.

It is well known that single-use systems provide a variety of benefits to drug manufacturers, but the growth of single-use brings to mind the environmental impact that comes with this trend. Globally, we estimate that 30,000 tons of biopharma single-use products are disposed to landfill or incineration every year. Single-use systems are made primarily of plastic, and I think most people agree that plastic consumption should be reduced and recycling increased. In fact, the plastic used in single-use technologies is of excellent quality because it has limited or no additives.

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) affect over one billion people worldwide. This group of viral, bacterial and parasitic diseases can be found in 149 countries – that’s 76 percent of countries in the world – and most often affects impoverished populations, who lack access to clean water or sanitation and live in close contact with infectious vectors. The effects of NTDs on communities can be devastating – keeping children out of school and preventing adults from going to work or caring for themselves or their families.
