Abstract

Although innovation may appear to be the latest hipster buzzword, innovation itself is and always has been important. All types of innovation matter, as well. For evidence of how even apparently simple innovations can be of remarkable value, we need look no further than to the use of clothing as a simple water filter in the prevention of guinea worm disease.
