Who We Are

ANPA represents the professional interests of 4,000 plus physicians, dentists and allied health professionals of Nigerian birth, ethnicity or empathy in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. ANPA provides a platform for medical and scientific dialogue on issues of health within North America, the Caribbean, and Africa.

Don’t Have a Local Chapter?

An ANPA chapter may represent an entire state, or only a part of a state (as in the USA) or a whole province or part of a province (as in Canada). Also a chapter may represent members from different adjoining or contiguous states (as in the USA) or different contiguous provinces or adjoining provinces (as in Canada).

A minimum of ten members is required to form a chapter of ANPA. Approval of the Board of Directors certifies a chapter as a bona fide branch of the Association.


ANPA week is our annual trip to Nigeria where free medical and surgical care is provided to an indigenous population; continuous professional development training is imparted to the local medical staff; and health care advocacy is done.
