A rolling series of events around the world launched the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Network throughout 2012. Launch events took place in Australia, Brazil, the Philippines, Sweden and Taiwan and the United States, among others.
The Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Agenda forms the foundation of the Network, which is a project of Health Care Without Harm. By endorsing the Agenda and committing to begin by implementing at least two of its goals, hospitals and health systems can join the Network.
Health professional, non-governmental and international organizations can also join the Network by endorsing the Agenda and committing to promote it to the hospitals and health systems they work with.
The Network is envisioned as a virtual community for hospitals, health systems and organizations seeking to implement and evolve the Agenda by charting progress in achieving measurable outputs, while sharing best practices and finding solutions to the challenges they share.
Membership in the Network is free of charge.
Members will chart their progress on the two or more goals they are committed to work on, setting achievement targets for the first year and beyond, and reporting progress via the members’ only section of this website.
Supporting organizations will set similar targets for outreach and promotion of the Agenda and Network to hospitals and health systems they interact with.
We will post case studies of best practices submitted by members and continue to share and develop tools to support implementation of all ten goals.
All participants in the Network are also committed to an ongoing effort at continuous improvement and taking on a growing number of the ten goals over time.
