Throughout October, Global Green and Healthy Hospitals will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. As part of our celebration of this milestone, we are excited to launch our brand new Chemicals Guidance Document on the 27th of October.

Developed to advise and support health care institutions in addressing the most pressing challenges they face related to hazardous chemical use, this comprehensive resource provides strategies, tools, and real world examples aimed at protecting the health of patients, staff, visitors and the community. Simultaneous translation will be available in English and Spanish.
