EAHP is a unique Platform that connects stakeholders with diverse health interests such as the Private Sector Operators (PSOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Faith Based Organizations (FBOs), and Interest Group Organizations (IGOs) within East African community (EAC). The platform was launched in March 2013 in Kigali, Rwanda by Hon. Jessica Osuna Erinyo, Deputy Secretary General, Productive and Social sectors EAC. It is a network that brings together the regional, national networks of health stakeholders in East Africa. The Platform therefore, leverages from these members pooled resources and expertise in advocacy and institutional development of its organization. This uniqueness provides potential for the Platform to voice and synergize their concerns in EAC health policy formulation, implementation and hold the EAC Partner States accountable for the implementation. A wide range of stakeholder consultations between 2010 and 2012 were held that included stakeholders and development partners in the region namely, the East African Business Council (EABC), the East African Civil Society Organizations Forum (EACSOF) with the financial support from EAC-GIZ GOPA. They initiated a joint action towards the establishment of the East African Health Platform comprising of the PSOs, CSOs, FBOs and IGOs to facilitate engagement and advocacy with the EAC Secretariat, and partner states on health policies legislation.
