HPH is a WHO-initiated, international network, consisting of about 600 hospitals and health services across the globe. We improve health of patients, staff, and communities by organization-wide integration of health promotion.  

As an international knowledge-hub with 21 national/regional networks, topical task forces and decades of experience, we get organizations started with all things health promotion. Let's help your organization too.
