The Board of Directors is collectively accountable to the community, funders and other stakeholders for COHSASA’s performance in relation to its mission and strategic objectives and for the effective stewardship of its operations, including financial and human resources.
The Board meets four times a year and one of its main tasks is to ratify decisions taken by the Technical Committee regarding accreditation and graded recognition awards to be given to healthcare facilities.
Since COHSASA is a Non Profit Company (NPC), it has no share capital and its Board members receive no remuneration. The Board consists of a minimum of six and a maximum of 16 directors with a quorum of at least 75% of directors present or represented by proxy for valid decisions and resolutions.
Board Members are appointed for their knowledge, skills and experience in a particular field of endeavour and they include doctors, nurses, administrators and entrepreneurs drawn from both public and private sectors who are considered leaders in their field.
A Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson are elected from the ranks of the Board members to conduct meetings and assume leadership in decisions of policy and finance.
