Over 20 leaders, including ministers of health and energy, heads of international organizations and senior representatives from civil society institutions today endorsed a Strategic Roadmap on Health and Energy. The Roadmap identifies key steps to accelerate access to clean and sustainable energy for public health protection and serves as a call to action to increase commitments, mobilize resources and put enabling frameworks in place.
The document was endorsed at the first meeting of the High-Level Coalition on Health and Energy (9th of June), convened by the WHO Director-General. The meeting provided the opportunity to kick-off high-level cooperation to identify concrete steps to promote clean cooking and electrification of healthcare facilities and to promote the role better energy access plays in achieving universal health coverage.
