Public health authorities of the semi-autonomous region of Zanzibar, Tanzania use drones to fight malaria mosquitoes.

Drones are deployed to locate and map mosquito breeding sites in the region. Funding for the project is being provided by the Innovative Vector Control Consortium, which was established in 2005 with an initial grant of $50 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Drones help to make operations quicker and more efficient, helping the effective fight against malaria mosquitoes.
