Cameroon To Regulate Illegal Clinics In Effort To Address Health Care Crisis

NPR: As Health Crisis Looms, Cameroon Cracks Down On Illegal Clinics
“…Cameroon is tackling a health care crisis. … But public health care is too expensive, or simply not available, for many families. So they’ve turned to unauthorized clinics for care. … [However,] the government sees these private, unauthorized facilities as a threat to public health. And it has kicked off a campaign to shut them down: The clinics that meet standards in regards to their staff, equipment, and hygiene will be asked to legally register, the Ministry of Public Health says. The ones that do not successfully register will be closed…” (Caballero, 2/19).
