Zipline mastered medical drone delivery in Africa—now it’s coming to the U.S.

Zipline, the drone-delivery startup that sends medical supplies to hospitals in Rwanda, has expanded into Ghana and has plans to continue into India and North Carolina.

Key findings

“Launched in Rwanda in 2016, the San Francisco–based company now transports roughly 75% of the country’s blood supply outside its capital city, Kigali.”

“In May 2019, Zipline moved into Ghana—and in less than a year reached 2,000 hospitals, covering 12 million people.”

“The company is now applying its knowledge around the globe: It’s launching in India later this year, and has recently been tapped by Novant Health to bring medical supplies to areas in North Carolina.”
