EHPPA - European Health Public Procurement Alliance is a non-profit organisation that represents a network of Group Procurement Organisations (GPOs). Its primary objective is to provide its members with a strategic position in the European health procurement market by pooling their expertise, leveraging their performance, and promoting collaboration among members.
EHPPA has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the healthcare public procurement sector, making it well-placed to support the Healthcare Buyers Community. The organisation's members comprise some of the most significant players in the European health procurement market, giving EHPPA a broad network of contacts and resources.
One of EHPPA’s key strengths is its expertise in health procurement policy and regulation. EHPPA members are subject to strict European public procurement regulations and many have extensive experience in navigating the procurement landscape. As a result, EHPPA can provide valuable guidance and support to the Healthcare Buyers Community in navigating this complex regulatory environment, while supporting our shared goals of innovation, collaboration, and sustainability.
As an accomplished healthcare management professional, the Chairman of EHPPA, Danny Havenith has over 15 years of experience in the sector. Throughout his career, he has consistently demonstrated his ability to lead high-performing teams as hospital CEO and organisations, including MercurHosp ASBL, the central procurement body of Wallonian & Brussels Hospitals, where he is currently General Manager.
An experienced project- and network manager with a decade of expertise building connections with European institutions, Louis Potel is the EHPPA Vice-President in charge of External Relationships, where he has been actively involved since its establishment in 2012. He works as Director of Innovation & International Affairs at Resah, the French National Public Group Purchasing Organisation specialising in the healthcare and social sector, and founding member of EHPPA.
