"Unicef":http://www.unicef.org/media/media_90462.html along with the Malawi government are leading a trial based on the use of drones to reduce waiting times for HIV test results in infants living in rural areas. Malawi has a national HIV prevalence rate of 10 percent, still one of the highest in the world. Currently it can take almost two months to get samples from a healthcare facility to an equipped lab and for the results to be returned.

Burma's Health Ministry has admitted that the country needs significantly more midwives. Senior health officials recently said that a mere 10,000 midwives are employed to cover 60,000 villages.

While the driver makes traditional deliveries, a self-piloted drone would seamlessly transport goods to other recipients with next to no human input.

On July 27, 2016, Michigan-based Vayu, Inc., in collaboration with the Stony Brook University Global Health Institute completed the first ever series of long-range, fully autonomous drone delivery flights with blood and stool samples, setting records in the process. The samples were flown from villages in rural Madagascar to Stony Brook University's Centre ValBio, a central testing facility located adjacent to Ranamafana National Park, over hilly terrain without any road infrastructure. The unique ability of Vayu’s delivery drone to take off and land anywhere solves that problem and helps vulnerable rural communities to get the medical care they deserve. “The flights to and from villages in the Ifanadiana district of Madagascar ushers in a new era in bringing healthcare to people living i...
