IIPH developing a payload-carrying machine for faster reach of healthcare to remote areas
Imagine a situation where urgent vaccines need to be delivered to a remote village in the State. Or, transport blood samples from villages to labs in the district headquarters. The normal mode of transport by road would take long what with the poor road connectivity. Imagine if they could simply be flown? It could soon be a reality as the Indian Institute of Public Health – Hyderabad (IIPH-H) is developing a drone delivery system for medicines with a temperature-controlled payload box, which would surmount terrain hurdles and cut delivery time.
