GGHH Reaches New Milestone

In May of this year we reported a huge milestone for Global Green and Healthy Hospitals: our 500th member.  In the months since then, we have reached another landmark: GGHH member representation surpassing 20,000 hospitals and health centers.  As of November 1st, the GGHH network consists of 582 members from 34 countries representing 20,412 hospitals and health centers. 
These milestones and growth of GGHH signify both the rising interest of hospitals, health systems, and health organization around the globe to reduce their impacts on environmental and public health as well as the collective power and voice of the health sector to act as a catalyst for transformative change.

Thank you for your support and dedication to transform the health sector. We look forward to continue working with you all in the years to come.

Hospitals Urge Governments to Address Climate Change 

GGHH members from Latin America and Asia came together in Colombia and South Korea recently to learn about innovative sustainability efforts being implemented at hospitals and health centres in these regions, as well as new global initiatives that the health sector can participate in to address climate change. 

As a result, representatives of hospitals and health systems from each region produced a declaration, urging their governments to reaffirm their efforts to fight against climate change, and work towards reducing their impacts on environmental and public health.
