Improvement of the quality of the medical care
A main focus of the Bon Secours work: provision, transport and distribution of medical equipment and medical consumables.
We evaluate on location in Cameroon: what are the local conditions, what are the specific needs? We discuss the requirements with our partners in Cameroon, and try to find solutions, together with medics, specialised personnel and technicians. In this way we agree with the involved hospitals what we can do.
We collect materials in Germany and Switzerland and transport them via container to Cameroon. (Update April 2019: 12 containers delivered)
What is the situation in Cameroon?
Many standards as we are used to them in Central Europe cannot be achieved. E.g. the power supply is instable. There are rapid voltage fluctuations which affect and damage many medical tools (except they are protected).
As long as basic elements like permanant power and water supply cannot be guaranteed, the technical equipment has to be adjusted accordingly.
What is needed?
Pragmatic ideas, talent for spontaneity, and sklled professionals who can deal with situations in the African hosptals.
