Marc Koska

Marc Koska, OBE has worked tirelessly over the last 25 years on Global Healthcare with a focus on Injection Safety. Back in 1984, he read a newspaper article predicting the spread of HIV through re-using medical syringes. He went on to invent an AD (Auto Disable) syringe called K1 that physically prevents re-use. Marc and the K1 have been credited with saving in excess of nine million lives, and his invention is licensed by 14 manufacturers around the developing world. All of Marc’s energy is now put into lobbying for legislation change with his charity The SafePoint Trust - delivering hard-hitting safe injection campaigns. Recently in India, a five day campaign led to 600 million Indians seeing the safe injection message and the Minister of Health mandating the use of AD syringes in all Government hospitals and clinics.
