Thank you for your interest in attending the 24th International HPH conference. Brought to you by the WHO Collaborating Center and the HPH Connecticut Network (Planetree, Griffin Hospital and the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center), this is a first-ever event of its kind in the USA!

HPH, whose aim is to improve the physical, emotional and social health of patients, staff and community members, and to contribute to protecting the environment was initiated by WHO-Euro in 1990 and became an international association in 2008. Today, the network consists of more than 900 member institutions the majority of which belong to one of the more than 40 national/regional HPH networks worldwide.

Their focus is to incorporate the concepts, values, strategies, and standards of health promotion into the organizational structure and culture of hospitals and health services. The network follows the principles of World Health Organization (WHO) regarding health promoting as described in the Ottawa Charter (1986), the Budapest declaration (1991), the Vienna recommendations (1997), the Bangkok Charter (2006), and the Standards for Health Promoting in Hospitals (2006), while at all times adapting to local needs and resources.

Join us for a memorable experience which will be held at the beautiful and historic Yale University campus in New Haven, Connecticut with pre-conference HPH Summer School sessions taking place at Griffin Hospital. The theme of this year's conference is Creating a Culture of Health through Innovation and Partnership. We invite you to learn, collaborate, share, and build a network of resources to take back with you!
