Solar panels were installed in the clinic of the village of Pelvert, Halach etrap, Lebap velayat. This is the first primary health care facility in Turkmenistan equipped with solar electricity.
According to the press service of the UNICEF country office, an alternative power source will allow the polyclinic to provide uninterrupted medical services, including during natural disasters.
The project to introduce solar power systems is being implemented by UNICEF jointly with the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan. The project activities are being implemented as part of a comprehensive strategy for climate resilient healthcare facilities developed by UNICEF.
Solar energy is one of the best solutions for uninterrupted, stable, reliable and clean electricity in Turkmenistan, where sunlight is available in abundance.
