Supporting Sustainability Efforts Globally

Supporting Sustainability Efforts Globally

Each country in the world is struggling with their own initiatives and learning on how to implement a sustainable healthcare system that really works for the future.  Furthering the growth of sustainability in healthcare is one of my personal missions and passions. Almost ninety percent of my time is spent traveling to other countries meeting with Ministries of Health, hospitals, government officials and developers, trying to bring countries together in order to have a real impact on this issue.

We need to collaborate worldwide and share our best practices and what we are planning to do to make a difference. There is no reason why individual countries and hospitals need to go through the same hurdles, make the same mistakes or learn the wrong way. We can all help each other out.

I am really looking forward to our upcoming conference in October this year where we expect attendees from over 90 countries sharing global case studies, exchanging knowledge and developing new relationships. The most important part will be the Ministers Workshop, where the Ministries of Health will be sharing their own case studies, new projects, problems and initiatives with each other and collaborating on future projects. There is no other place where this type of collaboration happens not only on a private healthcare facility level, but also on such a high governmental level.
