FEDEC is working to improve the health of indigenous populations in southern Cameroon.
The most common diseases in the area are: malaria and diarrheal diseases. They would also be the main causes of infant mortality in the area. Alongside these two diseases, we note the presence of respiratory diseases, skin diseases, etc.
We focus our efforts onraising awareness about hygiene, early pregnancy and recurrent diseases or epidemics issues. Water points and latrines have also been installed in communities and schools in Lolodorf, Kribi and Bipindi. We also aim to improve the management of Bakola/Bagyeli patients in health facilities and to develop the local know-how of traditional midwives.
