From efficiently designing buildings and deploying renewable energy, to successfully treating waste water and recycling resources, what is your hospital, health system, health organization or health care facility doing to improve environmental health?

GGHH-Call for Submissions-STD-2015Health Care Without Harm-Asia invites all GGHH members across the region to submit their case studies on any of the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals’ (GGHH) 10 Agenda Goals for presentation at the 2015 GGHH Asia Conference (to download the case studies’ template, click here).

To be held on October 29 and 30 in Seoul, South Korea, the conference will serve as a venue for health practitioners and environmental health experts to share best practices in reducing the sector’s environmental footprint while working together towards a greener public health.

The conference is organized by Health Care Without Harm in partnership with Yonsei University Health System and the Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute (KEITI).

The first GGHH Asia Conference was held in Manila, Philippines in 2013. Among the hospitals and health systems who shared successful projects were representatives from Mongolia, Nepal, South Korea, and Thailand.
