Government promises haemodialysis kits, after patients’ protest

Following manifestations which took place on the 29th of June 2017, by haemodialysis patients who blocked the entrance to the Yaounde General hospital on that day, the Minister of Public Health Andre Mama Fouda, has promised them that, a cargo plane and a ship are on their way to Cameroon with the necessary dialysis equipment.

Andre Mama Fouda explained that, the reason for the insufficient equipment is the irregularities that are in a majority of the Centres but that, everything is now under control as dozens of tons of kits are expected to arrive Cameroon in a week’s time.

The patients could not bear it any longer as some of them had even lost their lives as a result of this lack of resources. On the day of these public manifestations, the patients only allowed media men access to the hospital.


They made their minds known to anybody who could get them “we have begun fresh manifestations at the Yaounde General hospital. One of the worst things we are facing here is the shortage of water. A good number of us have been deprived of dialysis for over 9 days now, reason being that, the equipment is not sufficient. When we learned that the multipurpose sports complex had been renovated with billions of francs, we realised something was missing somewhere and that missing thing was the remedy to our situation.

In October we had 14 machines after the promise of the minister. He assured us of an improvement latest this past April. We are already in June but yet nothing to show for. We have already lost some of our friends, and we don’t want more of that” the patients revealed.

Statistics show that, at least two million people in Cameroon, are affected by this insufficiency.
