Chemists Without Borders

Developing Projects

Chemists Without Borders is a collaborative organization producing sustainable results for important field problems by applying direct solutions and developing partners in the delivery of solutions. We are catalysts and enablers for our social partners, constituents, and suppliers, to achieve our common humanitarian and social goals.

Water

  • Arsenic penny-per test: This idea seeks to greatly reduce the costs of testing for arsenic in ground water in the field, ideally to one penny per test.  For more information on this, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  • Clean water mobile app: This idea would develop and make available a mobile phone application that could use the GPS function in a user’s phone to identify water sources near the user that have been tested and are known to be safe for drinking. We currently seek mobile phone app and database developers.  For more information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Medicines and Vaccines

From its inception, Chemists Without Borders has sought to bring existing medicines to those who need them most. We collaborate and partner with AIDSfreeAFRICA which is building pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in Africa to be owned and operated locally. We seek to accelerate AIDSfreeAFRICA's growth, and help replicate its effort in many parts of the world.  For more information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
