New Infographics Demonstrate How To Build Healthy Food Systems
Healthier Hospitals Initiative’s member, Kaiser Permanente, and Health Care Without Harm have teamed up to produce a series of infographics that show how the health sector can transform the food system towards greater health and sustainability. They focus on three key areas: health care food purchasing power, healthier hospital food service, and hospitals as anchor institutions.
The resources aim to help hospitals and health professionals understand the impact that the sector can have on building a healthier food system and provide some exciting ideas for hospitals to try in their own facilities.
Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) is GGHH sister’s network in the USA It has more than 1000 hospitals and 13 major health systems (for complete list of hospitals see http://www.healthierhospitals.org/) and is developing resources that can be shared with the global network.
