African Christian Health Association (ACHA)
The African Christian Health Associations Platform (ACHA) was established in May 2007. ACHA 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 the CHAs and to create a stronger voice in advocacy.
ACHA facilitates translation of all important documents and publications into both English and French and ensures their dissemination to the respective CHAs. The Secretariat maintains an updated Directory of the various CHAs from Africa, and it has assisted in planning for exchange visits among CHAs from different countries. ACHA coordinates the production and dissemination of a quarterly electronic bulletin known as the Africa CHA's Bulletin.

ACHA's Secretariat was established through a resolution of the CHAs Bi-annual Conference - “Declaration of Commitment” - that created a CHA's Platform Secretariat and mandated CHAK to host the first rotational secretariat. The main function of ACHA is to facilitate communication and networking among the CHAs in Africa. ACHA gives health workers a voice. ACHA joined the Alliance in 2009 as an implementing Partner.
