Imagine having to give birth in the dark or have an operation with only the light of a mobile phone. While there is little awareness about the importance of electricity to health care, energy is essential for women, children, and families.
Health care facilities depend on electricity to function and provide essential services when they are needed most. Electricity is used to power the lights in the operating room and maternity ward, maintain the cold chain for vaccines, operate life-saving medical devices, and support and empower staff like Phoebe Akiiki.

The United Nations Foundation is enabling innovative clean energy solutions to power health facilities in Uganda and Ghana that build evidence and knowledge for the United Nations and its partners to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Learn more at poweringHC.org
