It may be pointed out that the very concept and nomenclature of GAMCA was evolved by a few Bangladeshi entrepreneurs including the undersigned and subsequently the same was recognized by the GCC Authority and the Embassies of the GCC states in Dhaka. In Course of time, realizing the effectiveness of GAMCA, the GCC Authority set up GAMCA in the countries of South Asia also. Precisely, on 20th September, 1999 at 7-30 PM, GAMCA got a formal shape through a general meeting of the owners of the concerned medical check up centers, held at Hotel Sheraton with Mr. Fahad N AI-Saqr, Head of the Consulate section, representing the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia. The Executive Board of the Health Ministers. Council for GCC States in it’s meeting held in Riyadh on 13-14 November, 1999 accepted the formation of GAMCA, thus making it compulsory for all the member health centers to work through GAMCA in Bangladesh.
After the formation of GAMCA, discipline in real sense has come back in manpower business, which was lost during the time of open medical i.e. when medical examination could be done from any Medical Centre. A section of the recruiting agents took chance of this open medical system and started hard negotiation with the medical centres for extraction of kickback against each person. This practice resulted in deterioration of the health examination and test standard prescribed by the Executive Board of the Health Minister's Council for G.C.C, States. A few medical centres made best use of this opportunity to make money without caring for any standard. Consequently, many people came back penniless from the employing country as they became unfit after health re-checking there. In the backdrop of such a sticky situation, the GAMCA was formed and it was hailed by the Embassies of the G.C.C States and all the renowned recruiting agents of the country. It has relieved the agony of the recruiting agents as they are getting international standard services form GAMCA as well as the approved medical centres.
