List Of Professional Health Associations In Nigeria

We are aware that a lot of people do not know much about the full list of professional health associations in Nigeria today. I would even say that most people are not aware that these professional bodies exist. Few persons could be aware of only few of these bodies. But today, we will be showing you a very detailed list of professional health organisations in Nigeria.

Professional bodies are organisations whose members are individual professionals. In some professions it is compulsory to be a member of the professional body, in others it is not. This usually depends on whether or not the profession requires the professional to have a ‘licence to practice’, or to be on a professional register, in order to do their job. This is related to how the profession is regulated i.e. who is responsible for making sure that professionals are doing their jobs properly.

In essence, professional associations place vital roles in the very sector it operates in. Many of them provide the services of induction of the qualified persons into the profession eg, Nigerian Bar Association. Despite that, their roles are also very varied and diversified.
