Sharm El Sheikh International Hospital will be the first Egyptian hospital to join the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals foundation, which helps support its 1,600 members to stay sustainable.
As part of preparations for the COP27 United Nations Climate Change Conference, the Ministry of Health and Population is developing Sharm El Sheikh International Hospital to become the first green health facility in Egypt. The resort town plans to further transform all of their health facilities to become more environmentally sustainable.
Some of the changes include installing an air pollution detector inside the hospital’s trash building, and a device to detect the amount of dust in the air within the hospital’s facilities.
When the new installations are complete and the proper accreditations have been received, Sharm El Sheikh International Hospital will be the first Egyptian hospital to join the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals (GGHH) foundation. The GGHH runs under the auspices of the ‘Healthcare Without Harm’ NGO, which helps their 1,600 members achieve their sustainable health goals.
