The time is now for solar at African health centers

We are still in the midst of the crisis but today I wanted to take a positive angle and look at the future. Researchers are now working day and night to develop a cure and eventually a vaccine. And it is reasonable to expect this vaccine will be available in the medium term. The virus knows no border and in order to be efficient it will need to be available globally, even in the most remote parts of Africa. This may be challenging as vaccines require to be refrigerated and the WHO estimates that only 28% of African health centers have access to reliable energy.
Solar has demonstrated it can be a quick and cost-effective solution to power remote health centers.
Now is a better time than ever to focus efforts on solar for minimum universal health care across Africa.
