The International Conference on Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services (HPH) has been the main event of the International HPH Network since 1993. It is a forum of learning and exchange on health promotion in and by health services for HPH members, health professionals, consultants, researchers, academics and policy makers with 500 delegates on average per year.

The main theme of the 2021 conference was "Development of health-oriented health care management systems - How can health promotion optimize health gain and create more sustainable and equitable health systems?".

In order to give everyone the opportunity to participate despite the current health crisis, the 28th International Conference on Health Promotion in Hospitals and Health Services was held in virtual format.

The live broadcast took place on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 from Paris, France. In addition, all registered participants had the opportunity of post-streaming the entire conference for a period of 15 days after the event. This meant unlimited access to all plenary sessions, parallel sessions, posters and partners’ stands. Also the chat function was available to allow two weeks of interaction between participants and speakers.
