About

The Africa Christian Health Associations Platform (ACHAP) is an advocacy and networking platform for Christian Health Associations (CHAs) and Church Health Networks from Sub-Saharan Africa. The platform was established through the inspiration and support of World Council of Churches in 2007. On May 4, 2012 ACHAP attained legal Registration as a Regional Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). The registration was issued by the Government of Kenya under the NGO Coordination Act of 1990 following the decision of the 5th Biennial CHAs Conference and General Assembly held in Accra in February 2011. ACHAP is led by a Board which reports to the General Assembly. The Board drives policy, strategy and advocacy and is assisted by Thematic Technical Working Groups (TWGs) comprising of various member CHAs.
In its Constitution ACHAP’s mission is defined as: “Inspired by Christ’s healing ministry, ACHAP supports Church related health associations and organizations to work and advocate for health for all in Africa, guided by equity, justice and human dignity.”

The purpose of ACHAP is to promote continued, effective and efficient engagement of Church Health Services in Africa towards achieving equitable access to quality health care among members of the Platform and in Africa at large. The operations of the Platform are coordinated by a Secretariat hosted by the Christian Health Association of Kenya (CHAK) in Nairobi. The core mandate of ACHAP is to facilitate joint advocacy, networking and communication among Christian Health Associations and other Church Health Networks and partners in support of the Church health work in Africa.
