Public Health: Minister says family planning financing shall be included in National budget

Andre Mama Fouda, the Minister of Public Health made mention of that on Thursday 13 July 2017 while he was chairing a press conference dedicated for the sensitisation of the public on family planning methods.

The Minister in the presence of the Chief of Communication in Cameroon Issa Tchiroma Bakari, explained that family planning “refers to measures put in place for women to permit them manage their fertility”.

Considering the pre-eminence of family planning and the high rate of maternal mortality now in Cameroon, Mama Fouda disclosed that in the National budget that will be adopted in a few months from now, family planning financing will be included.


One of the key things which were announced was the reduced costs of contraceptives. “...it’s for this purpose that I signed a circular, rendering contraceptives more accessible. One condom costs 5Fcfa that means 10 at 50Fcfa, pills or oral contraceptives 125Fcfa, injections such as Depo provera 255Fcfa” the Minister Explained.

Cameroon concord was made to know that, this campaign falls in an international context generated by a high profile summit on family planning which is taking place in London, with Cameroon as one of the partakers. It equally falls in line with an operation initiated by the United Nations Population’s Fund which has as objective to have a world where pregnancies would be wanted and where putting to birth will be without complications.
