Ngaoundére: Supporting Hospitals, Improving Mother-Child Health

Health and social protection a motif of the Islamic Development Bank,  to contribute to the improvement of the mother-child health offer, chose to support hospitals in the department of FARO and DEO,  whose good practices must be extended to a national scale.

This is the essence of the work session held on Friday, March 25, 2022 at the Ideal Hotel in Ngaoundere between regional officials in charge of health in the region and those of the Islamic bank.

The state of health of Cameroonian hospitals and the deterioration of the health system are major concerns for the State.

Infant and maternal mortality rates are among the highest in the world, due in particular to the deterioration of health services and the limited financial resources of households. 

Public hospitals suffer from many dysfunctions (dilapidated infrastructure, lack of equipment and staff, poor quality of care, poor management, etc.). However, some hospitals stand out for the quality of their care and their financial accessibility policy. 

This is the case of the Djohong district hospital and the Ngaoundéré Protestant hospital, both hospitals under the control of the Ministry of Health, but the second private on behalf of the Evangelical and Lutheran Church of Cameroon. 

They are important links in the health system, as providers of quality care within the health system and as privileged places for training students in medicine and paramedical care.
