Vietnam: Sustainable procurement to benefit human health and the environment

25 May 19: Việt Nam will be the first country in South East Asia to implement the Sustainable Health in Procurement Project (SHiPP), UNDP Việt Nam Resident Representative Caitlin Wiesen announced on Friday. The project is a joint effort implemented by UNDP and Healthcare without Harm (HCWH) with the financial support from Swedish International Development Agency in ten countries from 2018 to 2021. Despite its crucial role in ensuring people’s wellbeing, the healthcare sector can still have negative impacts on human health and the environment.
