International HPH Conference

The annual International Conference on Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services (HPH) is the main event of the International HPH Network. It is a forum for learning and exchanging knowledge and experiences on health promotion in and by hospitals and health services. Since 1993 the annual HPH Conference, hosted by a HPH Network, has attracted a very wide range of professionals – from health practitioners to consultants, scientists, and politicians. On average, the conference hosts about 500 delegates per year.

Our next conference will take place in 2023! Stay turned for more information!
