Cameroon Program Overview
CHAI started working in Cameroon in 2007 with a focus on improving access to HIV diagnosis, care, and treatment. We are helping to increase access to pediatric and second line antiretrovirals as well as strengthening HIV laboratory systems to better diagnose the disease. Since then, our partnership with the government of Cameroon has evolved to include cross-cutting health system strengthening efforts, including supporting the roll out of universal health coverage. We are also working to strengthen the health product supply chain, introduce and roll out innovative point-of-care technologies and cold chain equipment to ensure the potency and delivery of lifesaving vaccinations. CHAI has also supported the government in its efforts to save the lives of women and infants through mentoring of healthcare workers, increasing access to long-acting contraceptives, and introducing new and improved vaccines for diseases such as cancer-causing human papilloma virus (HPV), rotavirus, diarrhea, and poliomyelitis.
CHAI is equally supporting the government to improve access to medical oxygen and the national public health laboratory to decentralize COVID-19 testing. In addition, we are collaborating with the ministry of health to improve access to cancer treatment by lowering prices and enabling procurement of key chemotherapy drugs. Furthermore, we are working with the government through its National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), to build sustainable access to timely and high-quality information across relevant levels of the health system and help programs to routinely use data and generated analytics to inform programmatic and strategic planning and operations.
CHAI recently initiated engagement with the Cameroon Ministry of Public Health (MoH) to strengthen the clinical research ecosystem in Cameroon, the Central African Sub-region and Sub-Saharan Africa as a whole. Through this engagement, CHAI in collaboration with the Design Analyze and Communicate (DAC) arm of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, seeks to promote an enabling environment for the conduct of clinical research in Cameroon and the African continent, with informativeness as a core guiding principle and foundational value for planning and running clinical research projects. The project seeks to help investigators to optimize their studies for informativeness and impact by building their capacity to integrate the 16 DAC best practices for clinical research in their research protocols, as well as the use of other novel tools such as the open-source clinical trial simulation software, target policy profile, statistical analysis and communication plan templates amongst others. Towards this vision, the DAC-Africa (DAC-A) Pilot will establish a local presence in Cameroon, with the vision of constructing an Africa-based network of clinical research experts to customize and apply DAC processes and tools for the African context.
