Group Purchasing


The Group Purchasing Organization Special Interest Group serves as a platform for open dialogue at the international level between key Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs), healthcare decision-makers and industry.


The Special Interest Group (SIG) has its own governance under the auspice of IHF. Secretariat and coordination of its activities are ensured by Resah-idf on behalf of the SIG. The IHF Secretariat provides technical assistance, convenes support and offers its communications network for dissemination of information.



The GPO-SIG organizes events that address challenges and seek innovative solutions to purchaser/supplier cooperation and relations in order to improve healthcare efficiency through group purchasing activities.

Details of the various events are available here.
