Summary

Everyone should be able to access a nursing education, no matter how far away they live. We are creating the foundations for a sustainable primary healthcare delivery system in rural Cameroon. Neyang Health Academy Distance Learning educates the next generation of healthcare professionals where they live - in remote communities by leveraging e-Learning and Wi-Fi. Once graduated, these new nurses will be embeded primary healthcare professionals within the communities they serve.

Challenge

Delivery of primary healthcare to rural, developing communities is unsustainable due to lack of infrastructure, especially lack of remote healthcare professionals and transportation . About 7.2 million Cameroonians live more than an hour's walk from the nearest health facility, and many live greater than 21 kilometers (13 miles) from one. Decentralized delivery of medical education and resources are the only way to bring about sustainable healthcare in remote communities

Solution

Neyang Health Academy Distance Learning will deliver comprehensive, high quality nursing education by training nurses where they live - in remote communities. These new nurses will be embedded within remote communities where the need is greatest. This network of nurses will provide primary healthcare to serve people, hospitals, and their neighbor in rural communities, will understand their communities better and be better equipped than those from outside the area.

Long-Term Impact
