Using drone data to prevent pandemics and respond to disasters around the world
We had issues scaling data collection but with the help of Crowddroning by GLOBHE we can now easily scale by outsourcing flights to local drone pilots. The drones are taking images to help us understand where mosquitoes are laying their eggs so that the larvae can be controlled, reducing the number of mosquitoes able to spread malaria

In Malawi, malaria is one of the top three causes of death among children under five years old and every year malaria is estimated to cost Africa more than $12 billion us dollars, even though it could be controlled for a fraction of that sum. Research shows that drones sent out through Crowddroning by GLOBHE provide insights reducing the time spent locating, monitoring, and managing existing and new larvae breeding sites.
For health, you can choose whether to get 2D orthomosaics maps, high-resolution elevation maps, or detailed data insights. We will choose a local Crowddroning pilot that possesses adequate material for your needs based on the requirements you add when you request your data. By ordering from Crowddroning, you will be helping a local pilot with a month worth of income, and reducing the effect of climate change by using local resources instead of flying personnel and equipment to the site.
Benefits of drones in public health
Collects data 30 times faster compared to traditional ground surveys
Significant lower costs
Malaria costs $12 billion/year but drones can can control the spread to a fraction of that sum
By using drones the 40% of the world’s population who live in pandemic high-risk areas are being exposed to less risk
