Zipline Rwanda delivers cancer drugs by partnering with Butaro Hospital to where patients live due to covid19.

The New Times Press, The lockdown measures to contain the spread of the new coronavirus have complicated many activities including access to certain medical services, including cancer treatment.

According to doctors, cancer patients who fail to get the right care and access to medical services are more likely to die from the disease as opposed to dying from coronavirus.

To limit that, Partners in Health (PIH), an organisation which treats cancer patients from its centre at Butaro Hospital, has partnered with Zipline to extend cancer care services closer to where patients live
