(Business in Cameroon) - In an article published on June 10, the Cameroonian Minister of Public Health (Minsanté), Malachie Manaouda (photo), informed that a committee had been set up to monitor health problems in the country.

A comprehensive report on the functioning and dysfunctions of the health facilities will now be produced every month, within the framework of the health monitoring committee that I have just set up both at the central and regional level,” the official writes.

In his letter, the minister asked health workers to ensure that their actions and services are designed to assist, reassure and relieve patients. He calls managers of public hospitals to ensure the proper functioning of their facilities, taking into account emergencies, hospitalizations, access to medicines, monitoring of patients' progress, etc.

It is indicated that each structure should have a document in the form of a brochure, flyer or other appropriate means of communication, which gives all the necessary information to users. They are also responsible for ensuring better governance of the resources made available to them and for regular reporting on them. They must set themselves priorities, such as the renewal of equipment under their jurisdiction and the improvement of safety, hygiene and sanitation conditions in their respective health facilities.”

As for the employees of the decentralized services, the member of the government asked for better monitoring of the health activities under their responsibility. Objective: to provide central services with real-time data to measure the efforts made by public authorities to improve technical platforms in health facilities.

According to the minister, Cameroon's health map now shows 7 general hospitals, 7 central hospitals, 16 regional hospitals, 145 district hospitals, 228 district medical centers and 2016 integrated health centers.
