The 8th Annual World Health Care Congress - Europe

World Health Showcase

The health systems of Europe are diverse. However they face many common challenges. These challenges are shared by health systems the world over, many of whom are pioneering innovative solutions. The World Health Care Congress Europe has been designed as a unique forum to present these global innovations in health care.

Conveniently located in a key global hub, the 8th Annual World Health Care Congress Europe in Amsterdam is the only major international forum that convenes leaders from all sectors of health care to discuss and develop actionable strategies to improve care delivery and outcomes. The event has been designed to meet the needs of delegates from Europe. However, with over 60 speakers coming from 16 different counties, the World Health Care Congress is a truly global event that happens to be hosted in Europe. Whatever challenges you face within your health system, you will find solutions to address them here.
