International WHO Network of Health Promoting Hospitals

 Initiated by the WHO Regional Office for Europe.
The International WHO Network of Health Promoting Hospitals supports hospitals to become a more health promoting setting. Health Promoting Hospitals focus on promoting health for patients, staff and the population in the community and they are moving towards becoming a "healthy organization" (in a metaphorical sense) by redesigning or extending services.

This site features full-text of their latest newsletter, conference proceedings, a database of health promoting projects and a bibliography. Some documents are available for free only in part through the Web.
