The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

African International Division

About the African International Division

In April 2004 the Privy Council of the UK Government, responsible for Chartered Bodies incorporated by Royal Charter, approved several amendments to the Royal College of Psychiatrists Bye-laws. The main object of International Divisions is to facilitate the exchange of information and to promote discussion about psychiatry within a specified geographical area outside the United Kingdom and Ireland. The amendment to Section XXIVB of the Bye-law stipulates that "there may be such International Divisions, in areas outside the United Kingdom and outside Ireland, so constituted and with such organisation as may from time to time be prescribed by the Regulations, for the purpose of providing for discussion and exchange of information locally.
