Like the rest of the world, as the discipline gained prominence in Africa the need grew also for professionalism and sanity to be inculcated and ingrained as part of the institutional culture. Several countries on the African continent have taken up this challenge by having set up institutions that regulate the practitioners and strive to bring professionalism into the discipline.
