Data was collected using the World Health Organization (WHO) questionnaire regarding HPH (health promoting hospital) standards which contains 69 questions. The data was analysed using SPSS26, and mean score and standard deviation of importance and performance of HPH standards were calculated. The status of HPH standards in the studied hospitals was investigated using the importance-performance analysis matrix.
