Commonwealth Health Professions and Partners Alliance

In 2009, the health professional associations accredited to the Commonwealth formed the Commonwealth Health Professions Alliance (CHPA). In 2020, the CHPA changed its name to the Commonwealth Health Professions and Partners Alliance.

The CHPA consider that by working together they can more efficiently and effectively represent and support health professionals in Commonwealth countries and promote high standards of care and equity in access to care for Commonwealth peoples.

CHPA changes its name

At its 12th Annual General Meeting in June 2020, members of the CHPA passed a resolution to change its name to more accurately reflect its membership and to be more inclusive. The new name is the Commonwealth Health Professions and Partners Alliance although the acronym CHPA remains. This is an exciting development for the CHPA to reinforce its dedication and determination to support health professionals and other health practitioners to improve the health of all citizens of the Commonwealth, particularly in these difficult times.
