The International HPH Conference

The Annual International Conference on Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services stands as the cornerstone of the International HPH Network, providing an invaluable platform for exchanging knowledge and experiences in health promotion within hospitals and health services.

Since its inception in 1993, the HPH Conference has consistently drawn diverse professionals. From dedicated health practitioners to consultants, scientists, and influential politicians, our conference is a hub for learning and collaboration. Each year, we proudly welcome an average of 500 delegates, fostering a dynamic environment for exploring innovative ideas and advancing health-promoting initiatives.

Our next conference will take place in Hiroshima, Japan, from 6-8 November, 2024. Click here to learn more!
