The IHF Awards 2020 is Postponed


Due to the growing concerns about COVID-19, the Awards Committee has decided to postpone the IHF Awards 2020. The committee fully understands that in these challenging times, it is impossible if not difficult for hospitals to redirect their time away from managing the COVID-19 outbreak. Hence, we have decided that this is not an appropriate time or best condition to hold the awards.


In line with the postponement, eligibility of entries for the IHF Awards 2021 will also be updated to accommodate projects completed or partially completed from 2017 – 2020.


We would also like to take this opportunity to pay a special tribute to the healthcare industry for the exceptional hard work and sacrifices that they’ve done in combatting the pandemic. With that, we are pleased to announce know that we will be launching the Beyond the Call of Duty for COVID-19: The IHF COVID-19 Response Recognition Programme. With a mission to support hospital performance improvement, this Recognition Programme is provided to health care organisations and health service providers which have proactively put in place outstanding and innovative organizational responses and/or projects in facing the COVID-19 pandemic in their region. More information about this programme will be shared soon.
