The Salaam Baalak Trust is an example of this sort of safe haven/hub in India that provides a space for women and children to engage in creative activities such as music and other performing arts. What can we learn from these models?

Jamie Beck commented on Preventing Mosquito the local and effective way

Jamie Beck commented on Desiccant embedded PPE suit to keep PPE dry and bearable

A few other questions to consider:

1) What kind of information would need to be included in the packs that will help with training on how to use and safe protocol, especially in donning and doffing?

2) Distribution - how will these be distributed to remote communities that need them?

3) Manufacturing - who can manufacture these packs in a wearable version?

Hi, thanks for the great idea. Have you gotten any clarity around what is contained inside the packs? Calcium chloride, or other desiccant? What information do you need in order to move this idea forward?
