Healthy villages are smart villages – places where people can live healthy lives with longer lifespans, fewer childhood illnesses and deaths, and greater well-being.

In this webinar, we thought about the intersections of health and energy. Indoor air pollution remains one of the most deadly elements for many people in the developing world. We heard about a new clinical trial that offers data and ideas about solutions. We also learnt about innovative refrigeration technologies for remote areas that need to keep vaccines and other vital life-saving tools cool. We also heard about new ways to power health clinics and help women to give birth under safer conditions. We also discussed other crucial issues, such as nutrition and clean water.
