The former award is reserved for excellence or outstanding achievements in strong leadership and management in leading a hospital or a health service provider. Whereas, the latter recognizes excellence or outstanding achievements in promoting quality and patient safety.

The award committee, led by Dr. Lawrence Lai of the Hong Kong Hospital Authority, selected the winners in the six categories from 250 entries submitted from 38 different countries and territories - the highest number of submissions since the awards were established in 2015.

Winners were chosen based on criteria such as originality and innovation, intended impact, adaptability and scalability, scientific rigor, and clarity.

Entries for the 2022 IHF awards are scheduled to open in March 2022 and will be awarded at the next WHC in Dubai.

The IHF Awards were launched in 2015 and have been recognized worldwide as the premier awards that honor hospitals and healthcare organizations.
