Inaugural Meeting
1st European Edition



































HFIF Croatia (February 28th, 2HFIF Croatia (February 28th, 2013)

The first European Edition of the HFIF was held in Zagreb, Croatia on the 28th of February.
Held under the auspices and with attendance of H.E. Ivo Josipovic, President of Croatia, the HFIF’s first step on European ground attracted about 90 participants from all over Europe. This distinguished group of experts included chairmen, C-level executives, top level representatives from regional and multilateral organizations as well as esteemed public officials from around the region.

The HFIF provided the opportunity to share ideas and experiences during our three panel discussions and two interactive case presentations. In addition to the intensive content part, the event also gave the chance to get together informally with the other delegates during several networking breaks.

The general feedback after the conference was very positive. The next conference in Croatia, to be held in spring of 2014, is already in planning. In the meantime, the HFIF will continue to initiate further events in the region and beyond for realizing its vision of empowering socially responsible finance and investment in the healthcare sector.
