Global leaders in health and energy are paving the way for a clean and healthy future for all
The roadmap identifies key steps to accelerate access to clean and sustainable energy to protect public health
The absence of clean and sustainable energy has a significant negative impact on the health and livelihoods of the poorest population. Energy is also linked to most current and potential future global issues.
An estimated one billion people globally still receive healthcare services without electricity. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted that access to energy is essential to the function of critical medical devices, life-saving devices and ultimately the delivery of healthcare services.
The objective of the High-Level Alliance on Health and Energy is to enhance high-level collaboration between the health and energy sectors, increase political momentum, stimulate investments, mobilize public support, and advance practical solutions.
