Each member believes in the cause of influencing policy to create a more enabling environment, promoting affordable, accessible, quality healthcare for all. Since the beginning of my term in 2015, our membership has grown at an average rate of 20% per annum. We have seen membership funds grow, allowing us to do more policy and advocacy work. Our annual revenue has multiplied seven fold since 2015. This means we’re doing something right.”
