International Women’s Day 2023


International Women’s Day 2023 


Since 1911, March 8 has been designated as International Women's Day (IWD), a day that is focused on celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women from all walks of life, across the globe. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. To commemorate this year's IWD, the PAN-AFRICAN MOSQUITO CONTROL ASSOCIATION (PAMCA), is partnering with various champions and key stakeholders to highlight the role of women in the fight against VBDs.   As part of this effort,  champions and stakeholders in VBDs from PAMCA’s network have shared their voices and commitment to eliminating bias and discrimination against women. 


Guided by our strategic plan and global goals, PAMCA’s work to strengthen the role of women in vector control is integrated into all our activities. Our women in vector control (WIVC) programme is supporting and empowering  women across the continent through mentorship, training and capacity development, , networking and collaboration, visibility and excellence recognition, workplace support and non-professional engagement initiatives.

Happy International Women’s Day 2023 from all us at PAMCA.
