What can you count on in the medical center?
Our goal is to provide every bekoko resident with the best quality of care when they are sick, through our commitment to excellence and continuous quality improvement. To achieve this goal, we offer three main services;
- Consultation in the office
- Consultation at home
All these services provided and coordinated by a general practitioner. We also offer specialized consultations by appointment only.
Laboratory and pharmacy analysis
Our mandate is to provide high-quality, cost-effective laboratory testing through our commitment to excellence and quality improvement.
Our mission is to provide our patients with good quality medicines at an affordable price. Some of the drugs we have in stock are:
The mission for nursing services is to deliver high-quality nursing care based on the individualized needs of the patient and their families.
That means we will always seek to assist individuals, families, or communities in attaining and maintaining optimal health; assess and implement a plan of care to accomplish defined goals, and evaluate responses to care and treatment.
Support to Schools
To accomplish our second main goal, we have decided to start by contributing to improving the health of school-aged children in Bekoko. That is the reason why we want to establish partnerships with schools to create Health Promoting Primary Schools all across Dibombari. We want to achieve that by focusing on three main areas namely;
- Health insurance (free consultations for all the pupils during the academic year)
- Health assessment (annual health assessment for all the pupils)
- Health improvement projects (to promote healthy behaviors among pupils in the school)
Specialist advice: gynaecologist, physiotherapist, dietician only by appointment and availability.
Where to find us?
We are located in Bekoko, Bonabéri, Cameroon.
Why a medical center?
Cameroon's health system is in bad shape!
The medical care of Cameroon's 24 million people, as in many other African countries, is in poor condition. Hospitals are dilapidated, poorly equipped, do not even meet minimum hygiene standards and many appliances are old, broken and cannot be maintained on site.
Life expectancy is currently 56 years. Infant mortality per 1,000 births is 55.1 and maternal mortality per 100,000 live births is 700. According to the source, between 5 and 10 of the adult population is considered infected with the HIV virus. (from 2014).
The density of doctors is 0.08 doctors per 1,000 inhabitants. Because of a largely deficient health care system, the majority of the population has little or no access to medical care and that is exactly where we want to start our project.
We count on strong partners to improve the health situation in Cameroon on a sustainable footing.
In collaboration with our partner organization KamerunGO! in Switzerland, we aim to create a sustainable medical centre in Bekoko. Other partners in Switzerland and Cameroon help us with financial contributions, material or organisational tasks.
The Hope and Life Medical Center and the Cameroon Hope and Life Association are both partners of the Cameron Medical Network, initiated by Bon Secours e.V in 2016!
The Hope and Life Cameroon Association is proud to represent the cause in Cameroon and to work closely with all partners to improve the overall health care situation in Cameroon and to serve in various projects as a local project coordinator.
