Medical technology is taking blood delivery to the skies. The South African National and Western Cape Blood Services are joining forces in this pilot project. The aim is for much-needed blood to speedily reach even the furthest corners of the country.

The delivery service hasn’t taken off just yet, as the administrative task of licensing and getting air passage approval from the Civil Aviation Authority is still underway
