    Zipline in Rwanda

    Published on May 13, 2016

    More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, often due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure. Because of this, over 2.9 million children under age five die every year. And up to 150,000 pregnancy-related deaths could be avoided each year if mothers had reliable access to safe blood.

    Through a partnership with the Government of Rwanda, Zipline will deliver all blood products for twenty hospitals and health centers starting this summer, improving access to healthcare for millions of Rwandans.

    Zipline Delivery Time Lapse – Blood Delivery to Muhororo District Hospital

    Published on Oct 18, 2016

    Just another routine aerial delivery of life-saving blood to Muhororo District Hospital in Rwanda!

    Through a partnership with the Government of Rwanda, Zipline delivers all blood products for twenty hospitals and health centers across the country, improving access to healthcare for millions of Rwandans.

    This time lapse was captured today by Zip. Zip is our small robot airplane designed for a high level of safety, using many of the same approaches as commercial airliners. It can carry vaccines, medicine, or blood. Our fleet of Zips provides for a population of millions. No roads, no problem!

    The journey to get this blood to Muhororo District Hospital would have taken over three hours by car, but instead took fewer than 15 minutes by Zip.

    In this video, you can see why Rwanda is commonly called the Land of a Thousand Hills. Zip transits safely above the hills, then descends for delivery in a spiraling helix. After delivery, Zip passes under a thunderhead and powers through a passing rainstorm.
