About the theme

Health systems are fundamental to achieving and maintaining societal health and welfare. Ensuring the environmental sustainability and reducing the environmental footprint of the health systems throughout the Region remain important objectives and responsibilities of Member States. Towards these goals, health systems should assess and improve their environmental performance and efficiency in the use of resources. This will contribute to global mitigation goals and adaptation to climate risks while also enhancing their overall sustainability and resilience.
