The global speaker bureau
Marc Koska OBE is the inventor of the K1 syringe and founder of the SafePoint charity. Marc has faced and broke down bureaucratic barriers to fight one of the most virulent contributors to the spread of AIDS, with his non-retractable syringe, which was endorsed by the World Health Organisation in 2015. 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. His Life Saver public awareness campaigns inform and educate governments and healthcare providers about risks their countries face, and propose possible solutions.
"One of the most inspirational entrepreneurs in the world"
In 1984, Marc Koska was aimlessly travelling the world when he stumbled upon a newspaper article predicting the spread of HIV through the re-use of medical syringes. For Marc, the article was a game changer, igniting his interest in global public health and catalyzing his invention of the Auto Disable syringe that breaks following use. Three decades later, Marc and his syringe have been credited with saving in excess of nine million lives, and his invention is licensed by 14 global manufacturers.
