WHO team on project visit to FAIRMED
High-ranking visitor at FAIRMED-Cameroon: A team of the World Health Organization (WHO) visited different sites of the OCEAC project for the elimination of Frambösie to review the progress, successes and challenges of the project. In doing so, these findings will inform the preparation of the next phase of the project.
But what actually is the OCEAC project? FAIRMED has been known in Central Africa for decades for its expertise in fighting neglected tropical diseases. As a result, we have been contracted by OCEAC, the development organization of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community, to support several governments in implementing a multi-country project to eradicate Frambösie in Central Africa. The target group includes about 1.4 million people.
