Healthcare workers in rural areas face numerous logistical challenges. The American-based robotics company Zipline develops drones to deliver medicine supplies. The team of engineers, pilots, and healthcare professionals conduct more than 60 deliveries a week.
A lack of blood supplies is a major problem in rural Rwandan hospitals. Zipline's drones can deliver blood quickly, helping reduce complications and deaths. Zipline had to educate hospital staff about blood donations to gain acceptance.
Zipline's drone team is on-call 10 hours a day to fulfill emergency orders. The team demonstrates how to fill an order for blood.
