Providing Accessible Healthcare in a Prominent Location
With fewer than two doctors for every 10,000 people, Cameroon’s health care system cannot meet the needs of the country. Poor infrastructure means diseases from unclean water or a lack of sanitation are prevalent. In a more developed nation, these illnesses would be preventable. In Cameroon, cholera and diarrhea are life threatening. The Anglican Diocese of Cameroon will construct a full service healthcare clinic in the city of Douala. The location, on land already purchased by the diocese, is especially strategic, placed on a highway that serves four of Cameroon’s provinces. While the diocese has not before built a health clinic, is has implemented many programs to help the needy and is well respected in the community. A business plan is in place and estimates that the clinic will become self sustaining after the second year of operation. Construction will take about 18 months and will include an outpatient department, 12 hospital beds, a surgical theater, and a pharmacy. Core staff will be housed on-site to ensure continuity of care. Once completed, Christian healthcare workers will minister to patients in the name of Christ, demonstrating that God is our ultimate healer!
