We know 2018 is going to be the year of great African Innovation so we want to kick off the new year with a company that has revolutionised the distribution of medical services. MEET… Zipline, the world’s first national-scale drone delivery network that deliver critical medical products in 15-45 minutes to remote communities.
Zipline designs, manufactures, and operates autonomous drones to deliver life-saving medical goods to communities that are difficult to reach due to challenging terrain or road infrastructure. Their service strengthens health systems and their supply chains to improve health access and enable more agile, just-in-time delivery.
Already partnered with the Ministry of Health in Rwanda, Zipline deliver blood to remote health facilities that are often several hours’ drive from the national blood supply. Tanzania are also partnering with Zipline to enable urgent, reliable, responsive delivery to save lives in emergency situations and instantly alleviate stock-outs in routine situations.
Ultimately, Ziplines system reduces waste and saves lives and money by more efficiently distributing high-value inventory across a series of health facilities. We cannot wait to learn what is in store for Kenya!
Our MEET event series is the opportunity for business innovation enthusiasts to get acquainted with cutting-edge products and services, and the entrepreneurs and leaders that make a difference.
