47th World Hospital Congress: Rio de Janeiro

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 learning and 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 plenary and parallel sessions are complemented by invitational forums, workshops, masterclasses, poster presentations, the IHF Awards Ceremony, hospital visits, the i-to-i Innovation Hub, an industry exhibition, networking and social opportunities, and more. 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 local service delivery. 

The 2024 edition is co-hosted by the Brazilian Hospital Federation (Federação Brasileira de Hospitais – FBH).
