International Handball Federation (IHF)


Following the outstanding medical services provided by Aspetar – Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital during the 24th Men’s Handball World Championship, the International Handball Federation (IHF) invited Aspetar to become the first IHF Reference Centre for Athlete and Referee Health worldwide.

Aspetar, as the first sports medicine hospital in the world to be recognised by IHF, will work closely with both the federation and all the international handball teams worldwide to provide clinical services and concepts for injury and illness prevention, as well as collaborate on research and education with the unique sports science services associated with the handball family.
