West African College of Physicians (WACP) Calender Of Events For The Year 2010


The West African College of Physicians (WACP) has announced its complete Calender Of Events for the year 2010. All fellows and associate members are to take note and inform their centers. You are encouraged to spread the information far and wide.

The West African College of Physicians (The College) was formally inaugurated in Lagos, Nigeria, on 23rd October 1976. It is one of the two Colleges of the West African Post-graduate Medical College (WAPMC), which in turn is the largest specialised agency of the West African Health Community (WAHC).

The members Countries of the West African Health Community were the Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra-Leone.

The West African Health Community was recently changed into the West African Health Organisation (WAHO) to accommodate other West African countries. Its headquarters is at Bobo-DiouLasso, Burkina Faso. The College’s membership originally covered the five English speaking countries in West Africa – The Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

Following the establishment of the West African Health Organization by the Economic Community of the West African States of which the College is an integral part, the College has integrated specialists from the French speaking ECOWAS states as Fellows of the College, thus making it a truly West African Organization.
