At The Australasian Mastocytosis Society (TAMS), we operate under a constitution that outlines our mission, values and operational guidelines. This constitution serves as the foundation of our community, ensuring that we uphold our shared goals and maintain transparency and fairness in all our activities.

As outlined in our constitution (last updated in 2018), TAMS aims to:

  • provide a network of support for patients living with Mastocytosis or a Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) and their carers
  • connect patients to medical practitioners and specialists with knowledge of Mastocytosis and MCAS
  • link together with similar associations worldwide to collectively gather research data, share resources and knowledge in the hope of greater understanding, treatment practices, medications and overall improved health outcomes for those living with Mastocytosis or MCAS.

We encourage TAMS members to familiarise themselves with our constitution. Download the Constitution.
