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.
