Membership

We welcome any hospital, health service or organisation with an interest in Health Promotion to join the International HPH Network and become a part of a community with almost 600 health care institutions world-wide. Our network works to support all health care organisations in their efforts to be health-oriented and to ensure that prevention, treatment and rehabilitation be viewed from a health perspective.

Member Benefits

Based on the evidence, there are good arguments for health care to invest in health promotion, and for health promotion and health policy to increase their focus on health care.

Patient and patient organizations will profit from HPH as it focuses on the perceived needs of patients and relatives, creates better chances for self determination and self care, thus leading to better quality of life in the hospital and aims to achieve better quality of care, while also improving the sustainability of health outcomes.

Clinical Staff will benefit from HPH by its focus on health outcomes, health related quality of life, patient satisfaction and health literacy, and by including health promotion principles like empowerment and co-production into their professional standards. At the same time, all hospital staff will benefit from workplace health promotion strategies to reduce back pain, stress, hazardous exposure to substances and injuries.

Health orientation and promotion is important for hospital owners and management. Mainly because it serves to create strategies and processes for improving the health gain of services, thereby improving effectiveness and efficiency, giving more value for money. It also improves the reputation of health care institutions both as service providers and workplaces and the position of health organisations in a competitive health market.

How to Join

There are two levels of membership: Networks (corporate members) and hospitals and health services (individual members).

Beside hospitals and health services we address organisations that support HPH and work with health promotion, but are not eligible for normal hospital or health service membership. These can become affiliated members.*

Individual Membership

Step 1: Fill out and sign the Letter of Intent (LOI).

Step 3: If a network exists send the LOI to the network coordinator. He or she will forward it to the International HPH Secretariat.

Step 4: If no network exists send the LOI straight to the International HPH Secretariat.

Step 5: After approval by the HPH Governance Board you will receive a welcome package.

*If you want to become an affiliated member, please select “Affliated Member” on the LOI.
