The Minister of Public Health Dr. Manaouda Malachie, does not understand why many Cameroonians still prefer to travel abroad for medical treatment.
He says “Cameroonians must trust their health system” for there is everything they need within the country.
“We have an excellent technical platform and qualified personnel. We do not understand why we must continue to evacuate our compatriots each time they are suffering from an illness” Minister Manaouda Malachie wonders.
He further points out that Cameroonians no longer have anything to envy from other countries in terms of “technical platforms or human resources”.
“The real problem is the lack of trust. Many are skeptical about the ability of our centers to provide good quality healthcare, without causing harm to patients.”
The Health Boss, however, reminds the public that the hosting of the 2021 AFCON came with the upgrading of many health centers and referral hospitals in Cameroon, which they need to make good use of.
