As membership based apex body, EAHP’s mandate has two prongs. The first source of mandate is inspired by articles 7, 118, 127, 128 and 129 of the Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community (EAC) to provide coordination of the voices, structured representation of its members in order to effectively drive sustainable health development and growth in the region. The second source of mandate is by virtue of the fact that EAHP is a membership apex body and the aspirations of the members becomes an automation for EAHP should do and how.
EAHP geographic coverage is defined within the context of the East Africa Community (EAC) membership with current Partner States being Republic Burundi, Republic Kenya, Republic Rwanda, Republic South Sudan, United Republic of Tanzania and Republic of Uganda. The sector focus is defined in the context of article 118, and membership eligibility is defined in the context of the articles 127, 128 and 129 of the EAC treaty.
EAHP believes in value creation hence its programmes’ form and direction are based on needs of members and the community at large while inspired by partners at any given time and space.
