Check this report on an initiative by two expat Indians (in a team of five) to build a tool to fight cervical cancer. Says the report in MedIndia.net

A US-based team, with two Indians on board, has won $100,000 in fundingat the Duke University’s CUREs competition to develop a device tofacilitate cervical cancer prevention in poorer parts of the planet. The device, cerviScope, is a portable colposcope – an electricmicroscope that gives an illuminated and enlarged view of the cervix,that will cost roughly 95 percent less than comparable technology inUS-based hospitals. Since it is portable, it can be transported inmobile hospital units to benefit patients in remote areas.
