The Allied Health Practitioners Council of Zimbabwe is a statutory body, established in terms of the Health Professions Act and is committed to protecting the public and guiding the professions. The Council is mandated to assist in the promotion of the health of the population of Zimbabwe through regulating, controlling, supervising all matters affecting training, registration, practice and enforcing ethics and discipline amongst allied health practitioners.
The Council regulates the health professions in the country in aspects pertaining to registration, education and training, professional conduct and ethical behavior, ensuring continuing professional development, and fostering compliance with healthcare standards.
All individuals who practice any of the professions in the scope of the AHPCZ are obliged by the Health Professions Act (Cap 27.19) to register with the Council. Failure to do so constitutes a criminal offence.
