The first gentleman of the land, Nana Akufo-Addo today officially released medical drone. The drone was released in the region of Mampong to show opponents that Nana Akufo-Addo is a man of his words.
In a further session, four well-equipped drones will be released across Ghana to ensure the best medical service. The drone system is especially supported by the UPS Foundation, the Vaccine Alliance, Gavi and last but not the least the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
“Like the facility in Omenako, the Mampong operation uses drones to make on-demand and emergency deliveries of 12 routine and emergency vaccines as well as 148 blood products and critical medicines. ?Ghana’s Expanded Program on Immunisation (EPI) will supply Zipline with Gavi-supported vaccines for delivery, including Yellow Fever, Polio, Measles & Rubella, Meningitis, Pneumococcal ?, and Diphtheria & Tetanus, among others. EPI will also leverage Zipline’s delivery service for future mass immunization programs in the country.”
The drones can provide 500 plus health services and it will soon start work in the region of Ashanti.
“When we said we were going to use drones to deliver essential medical health products, the naysayers said it was not possible; today, many of us are seeing how impactful this service has been just within the past five months of its operations.”
