SEforALL– Best Practices and Lessons from Past and Current InterventionsTuesday, 30 June 2020 at 9:00 AM EDT/3:00 PM CEST The International Renewable Energy Agency [IRENA] is pleased to co-organise with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) and the World Health Organization (WHO), a webinar that will highlight practical lessons and insights into programme design approaches for healthcare facilities electrification, with urgency and sustainability in mind. The event will also highlight emerging efforts to power healthcare facilities as part of the broader COVID-19 response:
COVID-19 is bringing into focus the ingrained vulnerabilities of health systems across the world. Long before the pandemic made daily headlines around the world, a lack of reliable power in healthcare facilities has been undermining the quality of healthcare for millions of people, in particular in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and South East Asia. Heightened political commitment to strengthening health systems, coupled with recent advances in distributed renewable energy, present a timely opportunity to improve access to quality healthcare and make health facilities more resilient.
