CH Srebrnjak is the first children's hospital in Croatia that became member of Health Promotion Hospitals & Health Services.
The International HPH Network is made up of more than 900 hospital and health service members in more than 40 countries.
More than a decade ago, the World Health Organization initiated the Network of Health Promoting Hospitals as a pilot project in order to support hospitals towards placing more emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention, rather than on diagnosis and curative services alone.
The goal of being an HPH member, of working with health promotion and of collaborating internationally is to achieve a better health gain by improving the quality of health care, the relationship between hospitals/health services, the community and the environment, as well as the conditions for and satisfaction of patients, relatives and staff.
