Climate finance for powering healthcare

Approximately 1 billion people around the world are served by healthcare facilities without reliable electricity access or with no electricity access at all. The electrification of such facilities is a crucial requirement for achieving universal health coverage. This report titled Climate Finance for Powering Healthcare examines how climate finance, such as grants, loans and investments to support the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate impacts, can help power healthcare facilities with renewable energy, and climate-proof facilities with other low-carbon and resilient technologies.
