Gurugram-based healthcare drone logistics startup TSAW Drones has received a service order from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). This tie-up is poised to bring about major advancements in healthcare and medical supply deliveries through the use of drones, addressing critical healthcare challenges.

ICMR’s ambitious project, spanning three locations – Telangana, Karnataka, and Himachal Pradesh – will encompass six months of regular deliveries to support healthcare facilities in Yaddari district (Telangana), Manipal district (Karnataka), and Lahul (Himachal Pradesh). These deliveries will connect several locations, including distribution centres and primary health centres (PHCs), facilitating the transportation of vital medical supplies, TB samples, tissue samples, diagnostic samples, and more.

One of the most notable aspects of this initiative is to connect some PHCs situated at the world’s highest peaks, above 12,000 feet. This presents a unique challenge that TSAW Drones is eager to tackle.

Looking forward, both parties have their sights set on a Pan India expansion, connecting more distribution centres with primary health centres, and bringing cutting-edge healthcare logistics to even more communities across the nation. The entire project will be conducted under the rigorous oversight of ICMR, ensuring the highest standards of safety and effectiveness. Notably, all deliveries will be executed by TSAW’s logistics arm.
