Our History

The Pan-African Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) is an African professional body that brings together players in the field of vector-borne diseases and vector control. PAMCA exists to provide a platform for capacity building, knowledge sharing and collaboration for concerted vector control initiatives in the African continent. PAMCA’s overarching goal is to bring together African scientists and other partner institutions, to work together and adopt common approaches to tackling the burden of vector-borne diseases across the continent.

PAMCA was established in 2009 at the 5th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) Pan-African Malaria Conference in Nairobi and incorporated in Kenya in 2011 as a Non-Governmental Organization under the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Act (Cap 19) of 1990 of Kenyan laws.
