The WHO HPH Autumn School 2010 was held at Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Center on the 26th and 27th of October 2010.

The WHO HPH Schools are opportunities to gain insight and inspiration in the area of Health Promotion in hospitals and health services. The WHO-HPH Schools are yearly recurring events that target National / Regional HPH Coordinators, HPH Hospital / Health Service Coordinators, HPH Task Force Leaders & Members as well as other interested health care providers and administrators.

The WHO-HPH Schools are structured as a combination of lectures from highly qualified experts on research and implementation, workshops, group work and plenum discussions. This facilitates a close collaboration and sharing of experience and it allows the participants to get inspired, get involved hands-on, and get ready to do a real difference with their own HP work. 

The WHO-HPH Autumn School 2010 was hosted by the HPH members of the Republic of Korea and the WHO Collaborating Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark. The school dealt with the experiences of the Korean HPH Network, WHO Standards and Indicators, getting started with Health Promotion, WHO-HPH recognition and Improvement of Staff Competencies.

 

The Autumn School was held in connection with the 100th anniversary of the Gyeonggi Provincial Medical Center.
