EPHA-CPD as Provider

EPHA got its provider license from EMA in February 2022. EPHA has been providing capacity-building activities as it is shown on its achievement records.

Currently, the new EPHA main office is under construction and upon completion will have a state-of-the-art CPD center that is equipped with the latest technological support that will facilitate addressing the health workforce at the national & continental levels.

Meanwhile, EPHA is working in collaboration with EMvA to provide CPD face-to-face training and is also on the evolvement on the use of other methods for the provision of CPD activities.
EPHA-CPD is also under development of CPD courses that would be a great input for the quality improvement of health care service.

The EPHA House is expected to serve as a center of excellence for learning, research and development, training, and publications and an open place for public health professionals and sister organizations to network, deliberate and exchange information and thoughts of having public health significance.
