Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the WHPA unfortunately had to cancel the 6th edition of the World Health Professions Regulation Conference which was scheduled to take place on 16 May 2020 in Geneva, Switzerland.

It was to be a one-day event welcoming over 150 representatives from national health professional associations and societies, including regulators. The aim was to provide participants with new insights, diverse perspectives and emerging solutions to current challenges in health professional regulation.



WHPRC 2020 programme revolved around two key regulation topics:

  • the value of strong regulatory bodies to deliver quality care 
  • the importance of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

The conference was to open with a keynote and close with take-home messages for participants. A poster exhibition was also planned for which a number of submissions were received, covering both practical case studies and abstracts of academic papers. 

The draft programme is available for reference here.
