The WHO insures vaccines and other temperature sensitive products gets distributed throughout the world.  In many cases shipments have to travel days without electricity and even once delivered there is often a lack power either partially or permanently.  In many of these regions temperatures can above 50 c during the day and get down below 0 c at night.  This is why WHO, among other things has a certification program for solar powered refrigerators and freezers.
