IHF´s CEO Eric de Roodenbeke participated in the First European Edition of the Health Finance and Investment Forum (HFIF) which was held in Zagreb, Croatia.

The HFIF served as an international platform, where top health representatives and public officers from the region established a public private dialogue to link the finance and healthcare communities to upgrade and support the health care sector.
