The International Network for the promotion of singing in healthcare settings, known as Singing Hospitals, promotes the beneficial effects of singing for health and healing in hospitals and health institutions on an international level.
They plan to establish a world wide network, encouraging the spread of singing offers for patients, former patients, hospital staff and people interested in their own health (or that of others). In addition to the healing and preventive effects as a result of the singing in groups, this project wants to be understood as a contribution to the creation of culture and social encounters in hospitals and health centers.
At present Singing Hospitals is active mainly in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) but also cooperates already with projects in Romania, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Turkey and Sri Lanka.
