Africa Christian Health Associations Platform (ACHAP)

The Africa Christian Health Associations Platform (ACHAP) is a networking forum for Christian Health Associations and Networks from Sub-Saharan Africa. The forum has been established through the inspiration and support of World Council of Churches. The core functions of the forum are coordinated by a Secretariat Office hosted by the Christian Health Association of Kenya (CHAK) in Nairobi. The forum’s core mandate is to facilitate networking and communication among Christian Health Associations (CHAs) and to create a stronger voice in advocacy. Various Christian Health Associations in Africa have a form of Christian Health Association or a Faith Based Group.
