Preventive deseases must be addressed today!
(hundreds of people are dying as we speak)
Hundreds of people die due to the breakout of old deseases (thought to be extinct) around the world due to unavailable medicine and vaccine!
Did YOU know?
Madagascar is still suffering from bubonic plague, more commonly known as Black death!
Since August 2014, the desease has claimed 47 lives and 138 cases have been reported
The desease is most known for killing 25 million Europeans during the Middle Ages (during the 1300s), the same disease still exists today.

“While plague isn’t common in many parts of the world, Madagascar reports between 300 and 600 cases per year (80% of the world’s bubonic plague cases). Typically cases are seen between October and March. In 2012, Madagascar reported 60 deaths due to bubonic plague.”
“The bacteria Yersinia pestis is responsible for the causing the plague. Though early intervention with antibiotics can successfully and easily treat the disease, foregoing treatment can rapidly lead to some serious symptoms. Symptoms of the plague include muscle cramps, high fever, seizures, and painfully swollen lymph glands.”
Deaths usually occur due to the lack of exposure to healthcare treatment (vaccines, medicines) in lesser developed countries aswell as poor living standards and unsanitary conditions.
So, how do WE fix this PROBLEM?
Go on strike until the government addresses this issue?
Demand higher health care attention from the government?
Prevent all contact?
Do we kill all the contageous pests?
Build more hospitals?
Demand volunteer work from overseas, wealthier nations?
We can fly around?!!!
We can fly around and deliver medicines!
Quadrotors are the solution!
Quadrotors are the fast and efficient solution to the issue at hand. Quadrotors are already in full effect being tested at Amazon as a 30 minute "prime air" package delivery option.
The way the quadrotors would operate in this instance is they would be situated in a warehouse which stores all the medicine and data. The required medicine would then be placed inside of a box, collected by the quadrotor and programmed to its destination. Dropping off the medicine. Depicted in the diagram below.
The IT/IS systems involved will allow the quadrotor to operate. A GPS system will also be installed so that the device can be monitored throughout its flight tenure incase of any severe weather conditions delaying the arrival of the medicine.
Brings availability to everyone and anyone
Highly accesible (reach places that are hard to reach on land)
fast (efficient and cost saving)
easy (does not require extensive labour work)
