The purpose for the formation of PAMCA country chapters is to enable PAMCA achieve its mandate and its vision of providing leadership, information, and education in Africa at all levels and thereby lead to the improvement of health and quality of life through the suppression of mosquitoes and other arbo-viruses.
However, for a country in Africa to be considered as a PAMCA Chapter it must meet various requirements including but not limited to:
- A country will only qualify to be considered for invitation/application to form a country chapter if it has more than 15 registered PAMCA members in that country. Thereafter the country is expected to increase and maintain their members to between 50 and 100 members.
- The country chapters will bear the Name “PAMCA-Country Chapter” e.g. PAMCA-Kenya etc
- The PAMCA Country Chapter will adopt and customize the Mother PAMCA-Africa constitution. Certain variations may be adapted to meet the needs of the local logistical and governing regulations in the country of jurisdiction (Semi-autonomy)
- Each Chapter will adopt the same structure of management as PAMCA –Africa and governed as such (chairperson, Secretary, organizing Secretary, Treasurer, etc)
