The Healthcare Communications Association (HCA) already has member organisations with representation across the globe, but in 2023 we have launched our first affiliate. The German Chapter is led by a national steering committee and brings together a wide range of healthcare communications companies in Germany to unite and champion national healthcare communications, whilst remaining engaged with the wider geographical remit of the HCA.
Speaking about the role of affiliates, HCA CEO Mike Dixon says, “The central activity the HCA undertakes already reaches communicators in many countries, but there will always be specific considerations to champion at a national level and the desire for local networking. We are therefore delighted to see the German Chapter launch as part of the HCA, to facilitate this in Germany. We hope this first affiliate will become a template for other markets to follow”
