HPH Progress Report 2017-2018: Finland 

 

______________________________________________________________________________

 

The HPH Constitution (2008) for the International Network of Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services states that one of the tasks of a National/Regional HPH Network is: “To periodically deliver a progress report to the Governance Board.” (Refer to 1.4. Mission and Obligations, HPH Constitution)

 

For the purposes of this activity:

 

  • The period for progress reports to be delivered is every two years.

  • A progress report is defined as a report on efforts to assist hospitals/health services to ”incorporate the concepts, values, strategies and standards or indicators of health promotion into the organizational structure and culture of the hospital/health service." (Refer to Mission, HPH Constitution)

 

The aims of Progress Reports are:

  1. To provide a mechanism for HPH networks and taskforces to share information, knowledge and experience

  2. To contribute to an assessment of the achievement of objectives by the International HPH Network

  3. To help identify priorities for future action by the International HPH Network.

This survey refers to activities in the period 2017-2018.

 

All data will be made publicly available.
