(Business in Cameroon) - At year end 2018, a reference hospital should emerge in the town of Bertoua, the regional capital of East Cameroon. At least this is the timeline given by the Cameroonian Minister of Public Health, André Mama Fouda, to the management of the Moroccan company Alliances Construction, winner of the contract.
The construction of this hospital, which stretches over a total area of 13,000 square metres, is part of the Emergency Triennial Plan to accelerate economic growth adopted by the Cameroonian government in December 2014, and whose budgeted amount is FCfa 925 billion. Bertoua works will cost FCfa 9 billion.
According to the Minister of Public Health, this new health infrastructure will focus on diagnosis and treatment of “endocrine disorders and Otorhinolaryngology (ENT - Ear-Nose-Throat) including Head and Neck problems”.
