Background and Purpose of the HPH Awards
As decided by the HPH General Assembly and HPH Governance Board, HPH awards are given out each year in 3 categories to member hospitals/health services, national/regional networks and authors/groups of authors in order to promote HPH visibility, recognize extraordinary fulfilment of WHO standards, recognize extraordinary fulfilment of strategic goals and improve the number of published scientific articles.
The award categories established are as follows:
International HPH Award For Outstanding Fulfilment of HPH Strategy
(The award for fulfilment of HPH Strategy is given on the basis of the HPH Progress Report 2017-18, which all national/regional HPH Networks are asked to fill in with March 15, 2019 as deadline)
International HPH Award For Outstanding Fulfilment of WHO HPH Standards
(Only Hospital/Health Service members eligible for nomination in this category)
International HPH Award For Outstanding Scientific Publication

The winner of this award will be chosen by the Editorial Office of the Scientific Journal “Clinical Health Promotion – Research & Best Practice for patients, staff and community”)
