The International Hospital Federation (IHF) and La Unió Catalana d’Hospitals (La Unio) are closely monitoring the situation and public health and government advises related to the COVID-19. For the time being, the World Hospital Congress is still on for 2-5 November 2020. However, we understand that this rapidly evolving challenge is affecting hospitals and health service delivery organizations all over the world. Our thoughts go out to all those impacted and the IHF and La Unio recognize the work being carried out by all health professionals.
Notifications to accepted oral presentations and posters will be sent via email end of May.
For the time being, you can check the dedicated resource portal the IHF has put together which contains information and support on COVID-19 from our members, partners and other organizations for health and care leaders: www.ihf-fih.org/covid-19. If you have any examples of good practice, innovative tools or management techniques to share, we want to hear from you – you can contribute here: www.ihf-fih.org/contribute
You can also check the various COVID-19 information La Unio is continuously collating and publishing on their website here: www.uch.cat/altres/info-covid-19.html
Please stay safe and healthy and we are with you in fighting this pandemic.
