The PiAstra Pasteurization System development was made possible through a GSK/Save the Children Health Innovation Award to Prof Anna Coutsoudis (Department of Paediatrics & Child Health, University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN).
The PiAstra system was developed by Noel Powell and Philip Barlow (both UKZN alumni).
The system was based on the initial FoneAstra system developed by PATH and the University of Washington (Seattle), Computer Science and Engineering Department and HMBASA and we gratefully acknowledge these contributions.
