Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Reaches New Membership Milestone- 25,000 Hospitals and Health Centers

The first quarter of 2017 has been an exciting and productive one for Global Green and Healthy Hospitals (GGHH). In the first four months of the year we have surpassed our membership target for the entire year, and an important milestone in the growth of the network: GGHH members representing over 25,000 hospitals and health centers around the globe.

As of today, GGHH has 797 members in 47 countries on 6 continents who represent the interests of over 25,600 hospitals and health centers.

While hospitals and health systems from every continent continue to join GGHH, much of the recent growth comes from a new partnership with the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and the creation of the Health and Environment Leadership Platform (HELP).

Launched in February of this year, HELP engages hospitals, health centers, and health systems around India to form a concerted voice for environmental sustainability in the sector and demonstrate leadership to address the impacts of environmental risk factors for ill health. Nineteen institutions, representing over 3,000 hospitals and health centers are participating in HELP, all of whom make up the newest cohort of GGHH members.

The continued growth of GGHH signifies both the rising interest of hospitals, health systems, and health organization around the globe in reducing their impacts on environmental and public health, as well as the collective power and voice of the health sector to act as a catalyst for transformative change. We are thrilled to be working with PHFI and all of our other members as we move forward in this work together.
