MEDICAL DRONE DELIVERY INITIATIVE
GIVE ACCESS TO CARE.
EXPERIMENT MEDICAL DRONE DELIVERY
IN RURAL EUROPE AND GROWING COUNTRIES.
Medical drone delivery of biological samples, vaccines, blood units, or medical equipment is still in its infancy
The use of drones to transport goods, even of modest weight, over distances beyond line of sight, is still at the experimental stage. Overall, the market opening currently applies to recreational drones and drones for professional use within line of sight, i.e. a few hundred metres away from the remote pilot.
Clearly, the ability to bypass ground infrastructure, either because it is too congested, or because it is deficient or non-existent, is a powerful lever for transformation
Several experiments are already underway around the planet, especially in the medical field with the support of UNICEF.
We believe that the use of drones in remote places, on vast territories in Africa or in rural Europe, has the potential to transform access to care.
And beyond, it could transform medical support in emergency situations in cities.
Fly2Care is an open innovation project to unlock that potential and experiment medical drone delivery in rural Europe and growing countries
Create a community of like-minded people and organisations in the medical biology, life-science, or logistics industries.
Identify use cases that can transform access to Care.
Share knowledge, share the innovation effort. Mutualise logistics flow. Engage with local communities, plan for local jobs.
MEDICAL DRONE DELIVERY In medical biology? Open innovation project
Cerba Healthcare, a leading international network of medical biology laboratories, is collaborating in open innovation with The Drone Office.
Their shared objectives are to assess the opportunities and challenges of using drones to support logistics in medical biology and to expand or improve access to care for all. Drones can offer a powerful alternative to inadequate or costly logistics schemes, especially in growing countries in Africa where ground infrastructure is inadequate.
It is a great opportunity to discuss with people who have the experience of humanitarian actions in the field and understand how innovation such as drones can support their effort. The MSF Scientific Days share knowledge of what works, and learnings from what doesn’t work, in humanitarian medical programming with as wide an audience as […]
Afrique : le potentiel de création de valeur des drones y est considérable. Discutons-en à l’Afterwork HEC – X franco-africain
Sa géographie s’y prête bien: des grandes distances et, si l’on met de côté les grandes métropoles, des territoires à densité modérée. Les drones sont un levier de transformation pour relever certains défis auxquels font face des pays en Afrique. L’optimisation des récoltes agricoles par analyse des cultures et des sols La lutte contre le […]
Africa has the opportunity to leapfrog, using drones where ground infrastructure is inadequate or inexistent, starting with medical drone delivery. I look forward to meeting like-minded people at Investment / Trade opportunities in Africa on 8 June 2019 in Milton Keynes. hashtag#drone hashtag#uas hashtag#uav hashtag#africa hashtag#medical hashtag#delivery https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/investment-trade-opportunities-in-africa-2019-tickets-53384032077
The World Humanitarian Forum, on April 17/18th at Excel London, brings together prominent leaders from the public and private sectors, as well as international thought-leaders and pioneers. It’s a unique and essential opportunity to engage in inspirational, thought-provoking, and future-focused dialogues that aim to shape the future of humanitarian aid and international development, and ultimately […]
