I am happy to share the information below regarding the UAV for Vaccine Delivery Project in Vanuatu:
Ministry of Health of the Republic of Vanuatu, assessed by UNICEF, invites you to join the pre-tender (kick-off) meeting for MoH project number S1721: "Transportation of Vaccines and Medical Supplies using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or Drones", as part of the official issuance of the Tender Process for trialing the use of drones in Vanuatu for vaccine deliveries in 2018.
This stage (Phase 2) of the Vanuatu Drone Trial seeks to contract the services of suitable individuals/companies to test their potential, as well as Ministry of Health and Civil Aviation Authority capabilities and protocols, to safely integrate cargo drones in the last-mile delivery of the existing supply chain, negotiate costs, and develop a business model for a longer and wider stage during 2019 (Phase 3), and onward if successful.
