About us

The Somaliland National Health Professions Commission is a statutory body with the mandate of regulating, accrediting and licensing health facilities, health training institutions and health workers in the country. In 1999, an Act of the Republic of Somaliland Parliament was passed to establish the National Health Professionals Commission (NHPC). The Act defined the functions of the Commission in order to register health professionals, health care institutions and facilities. NHPC since its formation in 2001, NHPC went through a spate of challenges that made it non functional until 2006 when stakeholders met and re-emphasized the need for a stronger health system regulatory body. In 2008, efforts were made to reconstitute the NHPC and changes were made and/or envisioned to be made to minimize past short comings and utilize the previous positive experiences.
