Through work with several partners and donors, the UAS program explores the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to support health systems (e.g. medical commodity distribution, lab sample transport, data collection). The proof of concept in Malawi will investigate the quality of blood and oxytocin samples flown by UAV; the costs and benefits; safety concerns as well as community and stakeholder perceptions related to UAV utilization for transportation of blood and other health commodities; and will result in the development a long-term business case for the integration of UAVs into the medical transport system.
