Organization Description:
The International Hospital Federation (IHF) revived-with a new title-in 1947, is the successor to the International Hospital Association, which was established in 1929.The IHF is the global association of healthcare organizations, which includes in particular, but not exclusively, hospital associations and representative bodies as well as their members and other health care related organizations. As the worldwide body for hospitals and health care organizations it develops and maintains a spirit of cooperation and communication among them, with the primary goal of improving the health of society. More specifically, the role of the IHF is to help international hospitals work towards improving the level of the services they deliver to the population regardless of that population’s ability to pay. The IHF recognizes the essential role of hospitals and health care organizations in providing health care, supporting health services and offering education. The character of the IHF is that of an independent, not for profit, non-governmental organization.
