Rahul Srinivasan: Electrifying Health Facilities Across the Developing World
Rahul: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! As a part of an international organization with close links to the United Nations, we work with governments and various development partners to provide solutions and resources to support reliable, sustainable, and climate-friendly electrification of health facilities across the developing world. Electricity is critical to power many life-saving medical devices and equipment as well as to store medicines and vaccines. Since many developing countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, face an acute deficit of energy in their health facilities, addressing this pressing challenge can help save lives, improve maternal care and infant delivery, and enhance the overall quality of lives in these countries.
