Health Promoting Hospitals - Tobacco Free Pre-conference
Each year, The Global Network of Tobacco Free Healthcare Services is invited to co-organize the pre-conference to the Health Promoting Hospitals and Health services international conference. HPH's main annual event provides a platform for hospitals and health services to learn and exchange knowledge and experiences in health promotion. The annual HPH Conference usually attracts a wide range of professionals from health practitioners to consultants, scientists, and politicians.
