Associative and healthcare affairs direction, Unió Catalana d’Hospitals (IHF Full Member)
For Unió Catalana d’Hospitals IHF membership means a great opportunity of sharing future’s vision trends of healthcare in a global world. As a healthcare providers association, it is important to learn from others that face the same challenges as ours: a change in demographics, epidemiology and healthcare needs of the population contribute to health policies in each country, support healthcare management professionalization and, therefore, contribute to boost healthcare systems through improving quality of healthcare management and healthcare delivery.
The IHF is a key platform for a comprehensive international dialogue, ideas sharing and networking, partnership and knowledge exchange, to keep on helping our members to be sustainable and efficient, in order to achieve, all together, our fundamental goal: improve healthcare delivery quality to assure a fairer and healthier life for our people. It is a commitment of the healthcare community.

CEO, Kenyatta National Hospital, Kenya (IHF Associate Member)
We joined the IHF in 2014 after recognizing it as a perfect platform to share ideas and learn more on transformational leadership, innovations and best practices in service delivery, in a time of emerging global health challenges. Our participation at the IHF’s World Hospital Congress has exposed us to simple practical ideas and innovations which, if applied in complex environments, greatly impact health outcomes. Indeed, the IHF provides unique opportunities for great minds in healthcare leadership to explore practical solutions to promote quality healthcare and patient safety in a cost-effective manner.
