Every two years ACHAP holds a Biennial Conference to reflect on regional and global health issues and priorities, which have an impact on countries and communities served by faith-based health services. The 9th Biennial Conference and General Assembly of ACHAP will be held in Cameroon, Yaoundé on the theme “Re-Igniting Primary Health Care: The role of ACHAP.”

Historically, CHAs have always contributed significantly in responding to demographic and epidemiological transitions especially in fragile settings in sub-Sahara Africa. Hence, the conference will be an opportunity for CHAs and partners, members of ACHAP to explore the ACHAP role in implementing PHC for UHC, which role cannot be overemphasized.

Becoming a Member

ACHAP membership is open to Christian Health Associations (CHAs), Church Health Networks (CHNs) and other Church Health Organizations (CHOs). These associations, networks or organizations refer to those founded/ owned/managed jointly or individually by Christian denominations namely; Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Pentecostal or Evangelical. They shall be national in character. This implies an explicit mandate of the association, network or organization that enables it to engage in discussions and take decisions for and on behalf of its constituent members. In a country where there is a recognized nationally representative association, network or organization, for all Christian denominations, that association, network or organization shall be the only one eligible for ACHAP membership.
