SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medizone International, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MZEI) is pleased to announce the formal establishment of a not-for-profit affiliate, the Canadian Foundation for Global Health (CFGH). CFGH was founded under Canadian Federal Law as a not-for-profit Canadian Corporation headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Under the leadership of Dr. Michael E. Shannon, a founding Director and the foundations' newly appointed President, it is anticipated that the foundation will attract a broad spectrum of the most highly qualified scientists, infectious disease specialists and other medical health professionals from diverse fields of interest to serve on its Board of Directors, Science Advisory Board or as Principal Investigators.
Medizone's Board of Directors have adopted a business philosophy of "creating a corporate paradigm in which the corporation's profit follows its' social contribution." The establishment of this foundation fits into that paradigm not only by being positioned to attract the highest quality professionals possible to our research projects, but it is envisioned that as Medizone's products and treatments become ready for market, the foundation may play a vital role as a distribution source for developing countries with varying price breaks depending on the county's needs and the availability of international assistance; we intend to make effort through both the for-profit and the non-profit to make affordable medical solutions as widely available as possible for the people of the planet.
Medizone International, Inc., is a research and development stage company engaged in the development of novel technologies and protocols for O3 based bio-oxidative treatment of diseases caused by lipid enveloped viruses, including Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Hepatitis B & C, and Herpes, the decontamination of blood, blood products and veterinarian serum products, and the treatment of external pathogenic conditions.
