Research Shows Positive Impact of Drone Delivery in Healthcare

January 3, 2024
Summary
Drone delivery positively impacts healthcare and beyond, with a notable effect on remote regions, says a Science Robotics study. Zipline's blood delivery drone resulted in 51% drop in maternal deaths due to postpartum hemorrhage and 67% reduction in blood waste in Rwanda annually, causing a national delivery system overhaul with 75% of external Kigali deliveries now drone-executed. The service extended to food and vaccine delivery, saving estimated 727 lives in Ghana alone (2019–2021). Despite needing regulatory, logistical, and technical advancements, drone delivery holds potential for resonating global healthcare improvements and reducing carbon emissions.
