Drones are delivering medicine in Africa

A drone delivery service will make around 600 flights each day in Rwanda to deliver medicines, blood supplies and vaccines to 12 million people, including those living in remote areas.

Launched in 2016, a robotics company based in California called Zipline started the delivery service in Rwanda with a grant from Ghana’s government. Since the launch, 13,000 successful deliveries were made.

Each drone can carry 1.8kg and releases its payload with the help of a parachute.

Will drone medicine delivery change the way healthcare is administered?
