The proposed novel solution besides targeting "safe delivery" intends to promote "healthy infant" for a healthy childhood. The cost effective, resource independent, foldable and portable, environmentally sustainable (no disposable single use item, zero waste generation and skill independent) kits are based on FDA approved chlorine dioxide sterilizing and releasing platform. It can be effectively used to sterilize all the essentials required for SAFE DELIVERY (i.e. surgical tools, hand gloves, clothing item, scissors and clips). It can also be used for sterilizing infant gears, disinfecting water and provides convenient hand hygiene.
