[Dr. Jean-Pierre Byukusenge:]
My name is Dr. Jean-Pierre Byukusenge. I am the head of the Neonatology Department.
In Rwanda 23 percent of maternal deaths are attributed to postpartum hemorrhage.
[Dr. Jean-Pierre Byukusenge:]
In the case of postpartum hemorrhage, we need to tranfuse a mother who is bleeding or who bled and this transfusion must be done urgently. If nothing is done by the doctors or by the care givers, the mother might die.
[Dr. Jean-Baptiste Mazarati (Head of Biomedical Svcs., Rwanda Biomedical Center):]
When you talk about surgery, when you talk about maternity, when you talk about injury all those phenomenon in our lives need and require blood.
[Dr. Seth Berkley (CEO, Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance):]
So the challenge in Rwanda is although they have good coverage, it is a hilly country, the infrastructure, most of the roads are not paved and so during rainy season it is difficult to pass.
A 1 hour blood delivery by car could take 4-6 hours during the rainy season.
[Hon. Jean Philbert Nsengimana (Minister of Youth & ICT, Government of Rwanda):]
Imagine a situation where a mother needs blood, she’s been hemorrhaging and she needs blood in the next 25 otherwise, to be too late. Tell me, what other technology today can you use to deliver that product?
The world’s first medical drone delivery system has taken flight in Rwanda.
[Eduardo Martinez (President, The UPS Foundation):]
We believe that the drone technology is critical particularly in circumstances where a life is at stake, where every minute counts and you can’t get through a road cause its impassible.

Our ultimate goal in Rwanda is to put everyone of Rwanda’s about 11 million citizens within 15 to 30 minutes delivery of any essential medical product that they could need.
We are not only contemplating blood servicing, we are also contemplating vaccine distribution, also be contemplating any other good which can be transported by these drones.
One of the things we want to really emphasize that it’s now not just possible but affordable to provide that instant reliable access to medical products even for people in rural and hard to reach areas.
The government of Rwanda is a visionary in taking this extra step and now we’re going to help save millions of lives throughout the world as we expand this idea.
The UPS Foundation is committed to building stronger, more resilient communities around the world.
