46th World Hospital Congress: Lisbon

Date:  25 to 27 October, 2023
Host:  IHF

The World Hospital Congress is a unique global forum that brings together IHF Members and leaders of hospitals, health services, and healthcare organizations. Providing an invaluable networking opportunity for leaders in healthcare, the tracks chosen for each Congress focus on the biggest trends and common issues in the sector.  

Expert-led sessions are complemented by invitational forums, workshops, masterclasses, scientific posters, and exhibitors from across the industry. It’s a hive of knowledge exchange, collaboration, and innovation – a chance to gather the international community to focus on what healthcare leaders can learn from each other to improve service delivery at home. 

The 2023 edition was co-hosted by the Portuguese Association for Hospital Development, Portuguese Association of Private Hospitals, and Portuguese Association of Hospital Managers, under the high patronage of the President of the Portuguese Republic.
