The 44th World Hospital Congress (WHC) organized by The International Hospital Federation (IHF; Geneva, Switzerland) on 8-11 November 2021 in Barcelona, Spain came to an upbeat close.

During the event, which was held a year later than originally planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public health leaders and hospital CEOs in Europe and North America exchanged ideas on how organizations can prepare for the next global pandemic, alongside building more resilient healthcare systems. For the first time, the event was fully hybrid, facilitating the participation of more than 1,200 in-person and 300 online delegates from over 70 countries. For four days, leaders and decision-makers in the healthcare community shared knowledge and good practices, exchanged new ideas and innovations, and networked with other senior executives.

The theme for the 44th World Hospital Congress was, “People on board: Transforming healthcare by blending agility, responsiveness, and resilience”. During the event delegates shared many lessons and experiences from the COVID-19 pandemic. Alongside this hospital leaders were keen to build upon those experiences and implement strategies that can help mitigate mass public health issues in the future.

The highlights of the program included:

The WHC is the premier event in the IHF’s calendar and the organizing partner and host for the 44th World Hospital Congress was La Unió Catalana d’Hospitals (UCH). The 45th World Hospital Congress will take place in Dubai (UAE) on 9-11 November 2022.
