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. Every year, malaria is estimated to cost Africa more than $12 billion us dollars, even though we could control it 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 orthomosaic maps, high-resolution elevation maps, or detailed data insights. We will select a local Crowddroning pilot with the experience and tools suitable for your project based on your needs. By ordering from Crowddroning, you will help a local pilot with a month’s worth of income and limit the carbon footprint 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, we can make life save lives for the 40% of the world’s population who live in high-risk malaria areas
Better Data quality
