The ILC has held an annual summit meeting since its inception in 2008. In 2012 the ILC held its first three-day joint conference and summit meeting.


The conference, held on the first day and facilitated by local hosts, is a way of engaging the wider local community in a discussion about fundamentals of care and how we tackle some of the ‘wicked’ problems facing our health care systems globally. Exposing local professionals to international ILC delegates has always created rich and rewarding conversations and is one tradition we are keen to continue.


The summit, held on Days 2 and 3, is an opportunity for ILC members to discuss their continued work and move forward in their goal of transforming the way in which fundamental care is delivered.
