IHF World Hospital Congress-Hospital Congress

The IHF World Hospital Congress offers a unique global forum that brings together International Hospital Federation (IHF) members, leaders and decision-makers of hospitals, health services, and healthcare organizations to discuss key drivers of national and international policy, management, financial trends and solutions. Through this forum multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge, expertise and experiences are facilitated, together with dialogue on best practices in leadership, management and service delivery. The Congress is a one-stop shop for the healthcare professional seeking the opportunity and environment in which to engage in a 360-degree learning and knowledge-sharing experience among peers.

With Europe opening up, the IHF World Hospital Congress is one of the first hybrid healthcare management events that will take place in the region. Offering a compelling mix of sessions, posters, IHF Awards, hospital visits, networking opportunities, social activities, and an industry exhibition, it provides a comprehensive event experience that should not be missed. And for those unable to travel, virtual access is available.

The 44th IHF  World Hospital Congress is being hosted by La Unió Catalana d’Hospitals (UCH) on 8-11 November 2021 as a hybrid event at Fira Montjuïc in Barcelona.
