CNPS gets agreement with Tunisia Medical Services for medical evacuations

(Business in Cameroon) - The Managing Director of Caisse Nationale de Prévoyance Sociale (CNPS), Alain Noël Olivier Mekulu Mvondo Akame and the Managing Director of Tunisia Medical Services (TMS), Slim Maraoui, signed on 26 October 2016 in Yaoundé a medical assistance agreement relating to medical evacuations.

This agreement will assure patients of receiving the medical care and surgery for pathologies where medical evacuation is justified. In addition to these services, medicines, consumables and required devices will be taken care of, in compliance with the norms and international standards and in accordance with professional and medical ethics requirements.

Also covered under this agreement are: Blood and radiology tests, scans, MRI, transfusions, haemodialysis or any other cardio-vascular surgery. CNPS patients with 100% coverage from TMS, will have to respect the terms and conditions of the agreement (respecting appointment times, attending doctors, etc.).

The document signed by both directors covers some important progress in terms of medical evacuation of Cameroonian patients abroad. Indeed because these past years, despite the improvement in the facilities of its four medical structures throughout the country (Centre hospitalier d’Essos in Yaoundé, medical and social centres in Maroua and Garoua, as well as PMI in Bertoua), CNPS had to resort to medical evacuations in Europe. In France and the UK in particular.

Now, the distance has been shortened to Tunisia which has medical infrastructure of a level comparable to Europe.
