Operation Green

Operation Green is a student-run initiative that reduces the environmental impact of the healthcare field while increasing global social responsibility. With the support of dedicated UHN staff, medical students from the University of Toronto collect unused medical supplies and donate them to communities in need around the world. In addition to helping the environment and humanitarian efforts, diverting material from the landfill also provides healthcare savings that could be used in improving patient care. Since 2011, Operation Green has worked with humanitarian organizations such as GlobalMedic as well as individual medical professionals to achieve its mission.

If you’re interested in learning more about the program, donating materials, or inquiring about supplies for global health initiatives, please contact the Operation Green team directly at OperationGreen@uhn.ca
