Central African Republic: FAIRMED and government continue cooperation
Great success for our FAIRMED team in the Central African Republic (RCA): A few days ago, our country coordinator Jacques Minyem signed a new cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Health and Population.
With this, FAIRMED will continue its commitment to the most neglected and stigmatised populations in the Central African Republic. Since 1950, FAIRMED has been working with the RCA Ministry of Health through various activities aimed at providing access to health for these populations and combating neglected tropical diseases.
This fruitful collaboration has contributed, among other things, to eliminating leprosy in 2008 and fighting stigma, as well as promoting social justice and reintegration for many patients.
Minister wants even more intensive cooperation
The official ceremony to sign the cooperation agreement was presided over by Dr Pierre Somsse, Minister of Health and Population. He thanked all donors in Switzerland who enable FAIRMED to make a sustainable and effective commitment to the health system and the population in the RCA. He also called for FAIRMED's work to be extended to other regions and countries in the future.
