The AIR-POP project aims to optimize the screening and management of HIV-exposed newborns by studying the feasibility of transporting blood samples by drone.

A child’s chances of survival depend on early treatment, which is often hampered by the late availability of screening results. Obtaining results is limited by the difficulty of transporting blood samples between health centers and the laboratory in charge. Transporting these samples by drone would reduce delivery time and optimize knowledge of the newborn’s HIV status. The AIR-POP project was published in The Conversation France, and reprinted in Ouest-France and also published in Science&Vie (both in french).
