Health Care Committee


1. Green hospitals

  • Hospitals are energy-intensive and produce 2.5 times more emissions than commercial buildings. Health systems account for 4.4% of global CO2 emissions, more than aviation or shipping. Hospitals generate 13 kg of waste per bed daily, with 15-25% being hazardous waste. Implementing the concept of green hospitals can bring significant savings in energy, waste, and CO2 emissions, and can also improve treatment outcomes.

2. Obesity

  • Obesity is a complex problem influenced by various factors. Current health policies fail to effectively address this epidemic. Challenges in regulating the food industry, including product labeling and promoting healthy choices, further complicate the fight against obesity. Successful obesity prevention strategies can bring economic benefits, including reduced healthcare costs and increased productivity.

3. HTA (Health Technology Assessment)

  • HTA is a process that assesses the effectiveness, safety, and cost-effectiveness of health technologies. This approach encompasses medical, economic, social, and ethical aspects. HTA aids in deciding which technologies should be integrated into the healthcare system. AmCham supports the use of HTA to ensure quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness in the healthcare sector.

During 2024, the Committee will monitor legislative changes to be announced and implemented by the Ministry of Health and other responsible institutions and act accordingly.
