Cameroon, on the Gulf of Guinea, is a Central African country of varied terrain and wildlife. Its inland capital, Yaoundé, and its biggest city, the seaport Douala, are transit points to ecotourism sites as well as beach resorts. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Cameroon’s coastline lies on the Bight of Biafra, part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. Major cities in Cameroon include Yaounde, Bamenda, Buea, Limbe etc. Some of the international airport in Cameroon includes Douala international airport, Yaounde Nsimalen international airport and Garoua international airport.
CAMEROON HEALTH SECTOR
The healthcare system of Cameroon consists of various public and private entities, institutions, and organisations that provide health services to the population. Ministry of Public Health is responsible for the maintenance of all public health services in the country. Hospitals with good quality can be found in cities of Cameroon, such as Douala and Yaounde.
Medical facilities in Cameroon are limited. Even in large cities, emergency care and hospitalization for major illnesses and surgery are restricted by the lack of trained medical specialists, outdated diagnostic equipment, and poor sanitation, lack of medico logistic services. The quality of healthcare in Cameroon is much lower than the standards in most western nations. All these factors make it difficult to save lives in a country like Cameroon.
Death of both old and young people can be largely reduced if services of air ambulance providers are embrace in this part of the world. Cameroon which is a neighboring country can benefit from this service and help lower death rate in the country. Nigeria is closer to Cameroon; it can be used as stabilization point for patients before decisions are made either to fly them abroad for onward treatment if necessary.
This is simply the moving or medevac of patient from lower level of care to higher level facilities. Lack of awareness for air ambulance service is a key factor that is still putting most of African countries behind. In Nigeria, an air ambulance service is available 24/7 but most countries around Nigeria are not aware of this fact.
The Flying Doctors Nigeria offer various medico logistics services ranging from helicopter medevac, fixed wing transfers and commercial flight transfer of patient locally, regional and international. We respond swiftly to emergency calls and response time is mostly between 60minutes to 90minutes of call. We have French speaking staffs that have excellent local knowledge of the area which makes language not a barrier a problem at all.
