Azura Life combines safer syringes with comprehensive needlestick insurance.
Our mission is to eliminate unsafe needles. The needles we supply can only be used once, as no needle should ever be reused.
37.6%of Hepatitis B
39%of Hepatitis C
in healthcare workers around the world is due to needlestick injuries.
We have developed a system which drastically reduces sharps injuries, at no additional cost to healthcare providers, and is fully compliant with the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act (NSPA). We achieve this by:
By offering considerably cheaper insurance, we can subsidise the cost of safer needles which are typically more expensive. This provides healthcare workers with a safer work environment.
Each new healthcare provider that joins Azura Life will use safer needles, helping to ensure they become the standard rather than the alternative. This will help drive down manufacturing costs.
To ensure safer needles become the standard, there are 3 key areas where Azura Life is focused. This not only benefits healthcare providers, but also those in the developing world.
Current needlestick insurance premiums are expensive, as a result of unsafe devices. However safer syringes do not necessarily increase premiums, or involve additional administrative efforts.
02 Safer Needles
SecureGard© needles are single use only, using the same technique as existing needles. After injection, the needle safely retracts back into the barrel of the syringe.
03 Developing World
Needle reuse is rampant in the developing world, where needles are not only reused by healthcare providers, but are also sought out in medical waste to be sold back to local hospitals.
Azura Life requires that healthcare providers using our needles are signed up to responsible waste schemes, where the entire chain from collection to destruction is completely traceable.
We’re raising money to significantly reduce sharps injuries, by making safer syringes the standard. Join the movement today by taking part in our Initial License Offering (ILO).
