In order to provide care, health professionals need basic, stable buildings to operate as clinics, birth centers and hospitals. Facilities are few and far between in many developing countries, posing challenges to laboring women who are trying to reach care. Even when women can reach healthcare facilities, they may not have the basic utilities needed to provide care. Over 1.2 billion people1 - 20% of the world's population - still live without access to electricity. Almost all live in developing countries, including about 550 million in Africa, and over 400 million in India. Lack of reliable electricity means hospitals may not have lights, refrigeration, anesthesia and other essential services required to meet women’s medical needs and provide 24- hour emergency care. This inhibits providers’ ability to assess and care for patients, for example for hemorrhage during nighttime deliveries or for babies with breathing difficulties. It means patients who need surgery must wait until electricity is available or transfer to a facility that has power. Surgical equipment can’t be sterilized properly, blood can’t be refrigerated, stored and warmed for transfusions and medications can’t be stored at proper temperatures. In addition, 345 million2 lack access to basic water and sanitation services. Lack of water and sanitation facilities prevents providers from observing standards of asepsis required to prevent infections.
