DJI - Fighting Malaria with drones

January 7, 2020 - 23:12 -- Malaria World

Malaria ranks amongst the world's deadliest diseases and has claimed over 52 billion lives. Although significant progress has been made to combat malaria with conventional techniques, more is needed to eliminate it completely. Deploying the cutting-edge Agras MG-1S drone, the DJI team partnered with the Zanzibar Malaria Elimination Programme (ZAMEP) and the local community in a novel project to reduce malaria transmission. Watch as they embark on a journey of innovation, using drones in a bid to curb this deadly disease. 

Special thanks to Guido Welter, Dr. Bart Knols and Prof. Richard Mukabana from the Anti-Malaria drone team for pioneering this idea and their help with creating this video. To learn more about their mission and approach visit www.antimalariadrones.com
