  • Approve policies formulated by the National Council.

National Council Members are elected to represent their zones.  The Council appoints an Executive Director, who heads the management team made up of three Directors for Programmes, Finance and Administration, Marketing and Resource Mobilisation. The Executive Director in turn recruits qualified staff to perform various functions in the Association

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: PPAG volunteers are committed to the objectives of the Association and are supported by staff to design policies and programmes to further the Association’s objectives and to carry out various SRH assignments. Volunteers receive orientation and training for the activities they are expected to perform.
