The IHF World Hospital Congress

The World Hospital Congress of the International Hospital Federation (IHF) dates back to 1929, when it was first held in Atlantic City, USA as a biennial event. Since 2015 it has been held annually across the globe.

The Congress is a unique global forum that brings together IHF members and leaders 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 45th IHF World Hospital Congress is being hosted by the Dubai Health Authority on 9-11 November 2022 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre (DWTC) in the United Arab Emirates.
