Drones for Health: Boosting Access to Lifesaving Products
For several years, VillageReach has developed the Drones for Health solution to improve access to medical products through drone integration into supply chains. In collaboration with governments, the private sector and non-governmental organizations, we aim to demonstrate the potential to improve the availability of health products and increase equity of access. Drones also have the potential to create cost-efficiencies, and help to save time where it is more geographically challenging for cars, motorcycles or boats to reach.
