Apolis Advocate, Inventor, and Activist Marc Koska came across a newspaper article which predicted that the re-use of syringes would be a major transmission route of HIV in clinics in the developing world. This gave him a new purpose and a path to pursue which lead to a seventeen year career of inventing and distributing an auto-disable syringe incapable of re-use. In order for his idea to be viable and easily instituted internationally, it had to be competitively priced, it had to be created with existing machinery, and it had to be used in the same way as traditional models. The result of his efforts was the K1 auto-disable syringe.
