Hosted Boardroom

Nearly two-thirds of health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa lack reliable electricity or have no power at all, making it difficult or impossible for them to deliver quality health services—including nighttime care, refrigeration for vaccines, diagnostic testing, and digital communication.

This panel discussion will present a evolving public-private alliance to connect 10,000 African clinics with clean, sustainable, off-grid renewable energy. Discover how the Health Facility Electrification Alliance could further your government or organization’s goals in health, climate change, and economic empowerment for sub-Saharan Africa
