IFHIMA President, Marci MacDonald and members of the IFHIMA Executive Board extend a very warm welcome to the Botswana Health Information Management Association (BoHIMA) as a the newest national member of the Federation and the fifth member nation in IFHIMA’s Africa Region.

The association was formed and established in July 2016 by a cohort of enthusiastic Health Information Management students as a non-profit organization. It was established with the aim of bridging the apparent gap in Health Information governance courses in Botswana and, ultimately, BoHIMA’s goal is to become an accrediting body and an internationally recognized association. It is mandated to promote better collection, recording, analysis, storage and dissemination of health information in Botswana. IFHIMA wishes BoHIMA’s President Mr. Oarabile Setime, Vice-President- Mr. Bokamoso Masikara and other officers and members of the association every success in the future.
