(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Smartphones are not just changing our lives; they are saving lives. In the developing world, cervical cancer is a leading cause of death in women, where over 270,000 lose their lives annually—that’s 9 out of 10 deaths. The sad reality is that most of these deaths are preventable through simple screening. Yet, women in these places do not have access to the care they need, which is why the innovative work of MobileODT is pivotal. It has developed a low-cost colposcope that uses smartphones to replace complex and expensive cervical screening systems.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Nearly one in three American families struggle to afford diapers for their babies. In some cases, parents stretch the time between diaper changes to make their limited resources last, which can lead to serious health problems for the babies.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Bangladesh’s farming sector is pivotal for the country’s growth and economy, engaging 47 percent of the labour force in 2015 and comprising 16 percent of the country’s gross domestic product. However, agriculture in this fast-growing economy is hampered by challenges from loss of arable land to population growth, from climate change to lack of quality seeds, and an absence of credit support to farmers. Often, the prices farmers receive for their produce are lower than they should be, trapping farmers in a cycle of poverty. Taking on these challenges here is agricultural company,...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Most businesswomen are familiar with the term ‘old boys club’ - an exclusive network of business men who can call in favours from their exclusive group to help close a deal, get new business or progress their career.

When a woman helps another woman through networking, they both benefit, and that is why the...
