Who Are We?

The Health Professions Authority (HPA) of Zimbabwe is a health professions regulatory body which was established following the repealing of the Medical, Dental and Allied Professions Act (Chapter 27:08) and the disbandment of the Health Professions Council (HPC) on 30 June 2001. The Health Professions Authority plays three major important roles of acting as the umbrella body for the seven health profession councils, acting as an appealing body for any dispute between health practitioners and their councils, and protection of public interest.

Our Mission

We seek to uphold and promote high standards for the health care delivery system in Zimbabwe through the coordination and regulation of activities of all health professionals, health professions councils and health care institutions in an ethical, efficient and professional manner.

Our Vision

To be the Health Regulatory Authority recognized as the world-class benchmark.
