Challenge

The existing Njah-Etu Health center in Meta NW of Cameroon is inadequate, was constructed in 2003, went functional with very limited facilities, to wit; a small pharmacy with no steady supply of drugs; a maternity ward with four (4) beds only; a patients ward for both male and female patients consisting of four (4) beds only; a children's ward, with four (4) beds; in addition, a small consultation room, no diagnostic equipment, a small room for laboratory, no equipment , and no supply.

Solution

The Njah-Etu Health Center will be upgraded to a Reference Hospital standard that will serve all the 29 villages in the area and its environs that make up the Meta Tribe in Cameroon, and the entire region of 5 million inhabitants , with a beneficiary population of about 1 000 000 inhabitants, more than half of whom are women and girls. The 4 zones that make up these villages are; Taah , Gutaah, Bome, and MedigNgyen-Mbo . It will also provide clean water, electricity and road infrastructure.

Long-Term Impact

. Many deaths in the area come from diseases which are preventable and that the health Care center will provide them access to proper assistance to help them collectively build efforts to prevent communicable or other preventable diseases that impede socio - economic development of women and girls. . As a result, given basic education, and adequate health care, these women and girls could become healthy and economically productive.
