Eastern Central and Southern Africa Health Community (ECSA-HC) is an inter-governmental regional organisation, established in 1974, to strengthen regional cooperation & capacity to address the health needs of member states.
During the 30 years of its existence, ECSA has evolved into a strong regional organisation that provides member countries with a unique framework for addressing health problems that require joint action. As an inter-governmental organisation, ECSA enjoys direct links with regional health policy-makers who include Health Ministers and Permanent/Principal Secretaries as well as an extensive network of regional health institutions. ECSA also maintains strong linkages with international development agencies based in the region and other parts of the world.
COSECSA is a college of ECSA-HC. ECSA-HC also has a college for nursing (ECSACON) and there is a vision to have a College of Health Sciences in which COSECSA would play a leading role.
