The International Federation of Healthcare Engineering (IFHE) is a non-profit, non-governmental body established in 1970 to enable national engineering professional organizations to join in a world-wide federation.
The purpose of IFHE is to encourage and facilitate exchange of information and experience in the broad field of hospital and healthcare facility design, construction, engineering, commissioning, maintenance, and estate management.
The Institute of Healthcare Engineering, Australia (IHEA), is the professional organisation for engineers and engineering facility managers, employed in both the private and public health care sectors.
The NZIHE are proud supporters of Mercy Ships, and they work they do, bringing volunteer medical teams and sterile operating rooms directly to people who would otherwise go without care.
