Update and revision of the WHO HPH standard manual


With 10 years gone by since its initial publication, the WHO HPH Manual for Implementation of Health Promotion in Hospitals is now under revision and update. The project is headed by Clinical Health Promotion Centre, WHO-CC in Copenhagen and funded by WHO Europe.

The revision and update will update the evidence-base of the standards with the newest scientific literature. It will broaden the scope of the manual to encompass the ‘non-hospital organizations’ that are also part of the HPH membership. The first draft version of the updated standards is currently undergoing a pilot test with clinicians from several countries, and subsequently an expert review process.

Upon final editing and modifications based on test and review results, a beta version will be presented to the HPH GA and conference attendees at the 24th International Conference in New Haven.
