Preventing Preterm Labor in Low Resource Settings

Scott Sullivan of the Medical University of South Carolina in the U.S. will build and test a vaginal insert for the prevention of preterm delivery. The device would mechanically support the cervix and dispense medication that would reduce preterm birth risk. It would be inexpensive, small, storage stable, re-usable and easily self-inserted.
