Theme: "People on board, transforming healthcare"
As you may know, the IHF Congress is a unique global forum that brings together leaders of hospitals, health services, and healthcare organizations to discuss key drivers of national and international policy, management, financial trends and solutions.

In recent years, the Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety has become one of the central platforms for improving patient safety worldwide.
