WAIMH hosts a World Congress every two years, each in a different country. It has long been the tradition of the WAIMH that every second WAIMH World Congress is outside Europe.

The Board of Directors starts the process of choosing the location of a new world congress four years before the actual date of the congress. The location for the congress of 2016 that will be outside Europe was decided in the April 2012. Read more.
