Marc Koska is a highly successful businessman and social entrepreneur who has helped to save over 5.5 million lives. Despite years of rejection, Marc persisted in developing his revolutionary disposable syringe. Now he licenses manufacturers worldwide from his Ashdown Forest base. He was awarded an OBE for his ';Contribution to Global Healthcare'.

Marc is a highly motivational and enthusiastic speaker, someone who has fought ignorance, bureaucracy and vested interest every step of the way to create a highly successful and dynamic company. One child dies every 24 seconds as a result of unsafe injections.The World Health Organisation estimate 3,500 dies each day as a result of unsafe injections, which is the equivalent of 10 jumbo jets crashing each day! Syringes intended to be used once are reused in developing world healthcare systems on average seven times, passing on blood borne diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis from one patient to another.Today hundreds of millions of his syringes are sold annually and the invention has saved over five million lives. All injections given with a K1 syringe, Marc's revolutionary invention, are sterile and safe. They protect the patient, and the next patient, and their families, because the K1 syringe cannot be reused - it locks and breaks after one use.

Marc Koska can tell his inspiring story and how he founded Star Syringe and the charity Safepoint Trust.

Marc was recently awarded the Innovation Health Award by The Tech Awards - an international awards programme that honours innovators from around the world who are applying technology to benefit humanity - making him one of the best health innovators in the world today.

His recent campaign in India reached a staggering 508 million people in just one week - a world record, raising awareness and educating the whole nation through TV ads, radio broadcasts, cinema screenings and newspaper articles - delivering a groundbreaking campaign to ensure that all medical injections are given safely. He achieved an historic breakthrough, resulting in plans for all injections to be made with auto disable syringes and thereby saving literally millions of lives in the coming years.

Marc has recently addressed many audiences, including the British Medical Association, the Sussex Business Awards launch, Rotary Clubs, Sussex Enterprise Business Conference, Young Enterprise groups, schools and colleges. Films about his work have been shown in many countries, as well as at the Royal Albert Hall as part of "Peace One Day".
