Vayu: Aerial Solutions for Last-Mile Health

With $132,000 of DIV support, Vayu, Inc. is using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to transport medical diagnostic samples from five hard-to-reach villages in Ranomafana National Park to a central research station with refrigeration. Vayu’s UAV, which is able to fly long distances autonomously, carry heavy loads, and land virtually anywhere, has the potential to address the critical challenge of reaching the “last mile” with robust health services.
