After two years of being hindered by the pandemic, we were excited to celebrate an in-person International Conference on Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services (HPH) this year once again. However, after careful consideration with the Italian host and the International Conference Secretariat, the HPH Governance Board has decided to cancel the event planned for October 2022 in Riva del Garda.
This is very regrettable for all of us. But the lack of planning security due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine finally led us to this decision. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our Italian partner who worked very hard until the end to find a viable solution under the given circumstances.
We are dedicated to putting on the 29th International HPH Conference in 2023 and are currently discussing how to make that happen. The next General Assembly meeting is planned for June 1st, 2022, and we will be taking steps to organize and online meeting of HPH Coordinators in October. Stay tuned and connected!
With kind regards,
Prof. Dr. Bożena Walewska-Zielecka
On behalf of the Governance Board of the International HPH Network
