Rwanda is "the Land of a Thousand Hills". Unfortunately, the roads that traverse these hills often make delivery of critical medical supplies difficult and time consuming. In late 2016 Zipline, a California based drone operator, began transporting emergency blood supplies to hard to reach areas by drone. As the network builds, other emergency medical supplies like rabies vaccines will be included. The operation is co-funded by the Rwandan government and a public private partnership between the UPS Foundation and Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance. During his presentation Mr. Etter highlight the innovative and operational aspects of the initiative as well as provide background on a unique public private partnership funding strategy.
