Congo Solar

This demonstration project will be carried out in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a country that has been devastated by war and socioeconomic collapse for the last two decades. Working for an healthy and prosperous community, Global Health Oregon has partnered with Architects Without Borders-Oregon on a solar-powered system intended to provide energy to health clinics and pilot test a disease surveillance system (DSS) that may serve as a model for several global health initiatives.  AWB will provide design services for an prefabricated off-grid solar power system.  It is the goal of the design to provide a system that can be quickly deployed by the team for four to five clinics in the Congo.
