The healthcare drone pilots in Arunachal Pradesh are an outcome of the state’s partnership with the World Economic Forum’s ‘Medicines From the Sky’ (MFTS) initiative. Supporting this initiative is also the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by IPE Global

Redwing Labs, a startup that makes vertical take-off and landing drones in association with SAMRIDH Healthcare Blended Financing Facility, has started a trial to utilise drones to provide healthcare services in Seppa, a town in Arunachal Pradesh, as per reported by YourStory.

As per reported by YourStory, the healthcare drone pilots in Arunachal Pradesh are an outcome of the state’s partnership with the World Economic Forum’s ‘Medicines From the Sky’ (MFTS) initiative. Supporting this initiative is also the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by IPE Global.

The drone network is being set up on a limited experimental basis to pilot aerial healthcare deliveries in the state. The network would enable diagnostics and emergency treatments in the local health centers, a statement noted.

By delivering medical supplies up to eight times faster than road-based logistics, the drone network would serve the population of East Kameng by offering a better quality of care in the interior blocks.

The SAMRIDH initiative was established during the COVID-19 pandemic to support healthcare enterprises and innovators across India implementing market-based health solutions. It provides grants and facilitates debt financing to healthcare initiatives to support scale-up of high impact health solutions that can improve access to quality healthcare for vulnerable communities, as per reported by YourStory.
