Global Green and Healthy Hospitals (GGHH) is pleased to announce the launch of the Green Health Challenges, a new initiative calling on its robust network of over 900 members, representing the interests of more than 28,000 hospitals and health centers in 49 countries, to increase their commitment to reduce their environmental footprint.
Founding participants include GGHH members from Asia, Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and Africa. The Challenges were first announced on October 10 at GGHH’s bi-annual Latin America regional conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil and will be featured at the Network’s Asia regional conference in Taiwan this week.
