The Amazon is home to thousands of local indigenous communities spread across very remote areas. As a result, these sparsely populated communities rarely have reliable access to essential medicines and public health services. Local doctors in the region of Contamana report an average of 45 snakebites per month and no rapid access to antivenom, for example. WeRobotics recently traveled to the rainforest to learn more about these challenges, and to explore whether cargo drones (UAVs) could realistically be used to overcome some of these problems in a sustainable manner. We are excited to share the results of our latest field tests in this new report (PDF); Spanish version here. We were able to deliver anti-venom and blood samples to a remote village about 40km away from the nearest town. A regular boat (canoe) takes up to 6 hours to complete the journey.
