The IHF welcomes you to the World Hospital Congress
On behalf of the IHF, I’m thrilled to say “bem-vindo” (welcome) to spectacular Rio de Janeiro – home of the World Hospital Congress 2024.
International collaboration is the core foundation of the IHF and our Congress. And a fruitful cooperation with our full member, the Brazilian Hospital Federation (FBH), has brought the Congress back to Rio 15 years after the hugely successful previous edition.
We keenly anticipate the opportunity to connect our international community with leaders of hospital and healthcare delivery organizations from across the Americas region. Fresh perspectives on challenges, innovations, and solutions for the healthcare sector will be shared. And a unifying commitment to advance our common vision – improving health for all – will drive our discussions.
Congress provides a forum to harness our collective power and potential to inspire each other to deliver for the communities we serve. The challenges of tomorrow must be met with new solutions. As well as contemporary leadership, our programme will focus on themes related to the healthcare workforce, clinical models to enhance quality, innovations in care and hospital operations, and sustainability. Each of these topics is a key ingredient to ensure that our hospitals and health systems are fit for the future.
I look forward to seeing you this September at the 47th World Hospital Congress. Together we will learn, exchange, and advance. It is sure to be a memorable experience that will have a lasting legacy for healthcare leadership worldwide.
