Developing UAVs for Health – strengthening health resilience supplies to “road less” areas with UNFPA
Danoffice IT has recently partnered with UNFPA and the university of Southern Denmark in a pilot project aimed at testing the impact of transporting medical supplies like vaccines and blood samples with UAVs. In the second phase of the project is to provide stakeholders with sufficient evidence to document the cost- effectiveness of using UAVs within health supply transportation. The UAVs will be programmed only to fly between pre-determined clinics and laboratories. Operation requires the clinic staff to load the samples into a container, insert a fresh battery, and launch the UAV. No active piloting should be required.

The need for accurate and timely information is vital to relief organizations in disaster situations. The first 24-hour to 7-day period is critical when it comes to conducting search and rescue operations and
making program decisions. In order to do this quickly and accurately, relief organizations benefit greatly from access to aerial imagery and sensor data. UAVs can provide this much faster and substantially less expensive than any previously known methods. The ability for UAVs to fly at a much lower altitude allows them to collect information from a variety of sensors (IR, radiation, cellular and others). The information gathered from the UAVs can be used for a range of different purposes.
