UNDP has been supporting the government institutions on Solar for Health initiatives to increase access to quality health services through the installation of solar energy photovoltaic systems (PV), ensuring constant and cost-effective access to electricity, as well as mitigating the impact of climate change and advancing multiple Sustainable Development Goals.
Solar for Health will contribute significantly to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the commitment to “leave no one behind” by reaching remote and under-served communities. This will particularly support the countries in their efforts to achieve SDGs 3, 7, 13 and 17: (good health and well-being; affordable and clean energy; climate action: and partnerships).
UNDP Solar4Health programme started in 2016 from which we managed to install solar PV systems to more than 1000 health facilities (hospitals, health centres, national and regional medical stores) around the world. The programme is providing access to quality health service to more than 18 million women and children, while reducing CO2 emission of the health sector and demonstrating cost efficiency.
This year, UNDP Timor-Leste has been requested by the central medical distribution store in Timor-Leste or SAMES (Serviço Autónomo de Medicamentos e Equipamentos de Saúde) to support with a feasibility assessment to install solar PV systems to the entire SAMES buildings.
