About Health Procurement Africa

Health Procurement Africa was established in 2019 by CIPS, the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply, the largest professional body in the world for procurement and supply management. Our mission with HPA is to improve the procurement of medical supplies across Africa, by developing a network of highly-skilled professionals, all working together towards the most efficient, ethical procurement practices and ultimately improving health and saving lives.

The Health Procurement Africa knowledge hub will support health procurement professionals in Africa to learn and share best practices, work together, and develop a more robust procurement system based on globally-recognised standards. 

You can also use the hub to find out about face-to-face and online events providing opportunities for learning and development, insights, debates, experience-sharing and networking.
