Greening health systems. Report




In August 2013, the WHO Regional Office for Europe organized a technical meeting to discuss requirements for developing environmentally friendly health systems and to contribute to the development of a roadmap with strategic direction on how this topic could be further developed across WHO European Member States. The meeting also allowed for lessons learnt to be shared from a variety of European local and regional initiatives. The development of these documents represents a first major step in a long-term ongoing process of greening the health sector.
