Prevu: Unité spécialisée en soins et chirurgie oculaire des enfants

There will be a unit specialised in eye diseases and surgery in children, as well as in the management of squints.

Avec l’ouverture de l’institut, les soins oculaires, qui jusque là nécessitaient de nombreuses évacuations sanitaires a l’étranger, seront désormais disponibles au Cameroun et accessible a tous.

It would not be necessary to leave Cameroon and travel abroad for eye care or surgery.

    Congratulations for this big project,which I am sure will attract many people from Central Africa and above.But you did not really tell when the center will open and which type of human resource will you require.
    Anyway keep it up and all the best.

    • Dear Eric,

      Many thanks indeed for your kind words and for your interest in the Magrabi-ICO Cameroon Eye Institute in Yaounde.

      The Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute seeks to provide cutting edge eye care and surgery, currently not available in the Central African Region. As such, we will be recruiting a team of highly qualified professionals (subspecialty ophthalmologists, ophthalmic nurses, optometrists, hospital management specialists, diabetologists etc.), who will treat all patients with respect and empathy.

      Recruited taff will benefit from continued medical education opportunities, to ensure we keep abreast with world standards, from our network of partners across the globe. Please do sign up for our blog alerts, so you can receive timely project updates on the Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute blog.

    du même avis que Dr NJIKAM
    il est grand temps que l’afrique se prenne en charge et prenne en charge ses malades sans avoir besoin des dépenses liées aux évacuations sanitaires, médecin interniste et diabétologue je suis très interressé par l’idée du centre
    sincères félicitations et très bon vent au centre

    wish to know about ophthalmic schools in Cameroon and requirements for enrolment

    • Dear Charles,

      Many thanks for your enquiry.

      It all depends on what type of professional training you are referring to. The University of Yaounde I runs a residency programme for ophthalmologists and ophthalmic nurses, for instance. You may want to contact them for details.

      The following link contains information on the ophthalmic nurse training programme http://www.kcco.net/TrainingProgrammesinAfrica20071.pdf .

      In any event, best would be to contact the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University of Yaounde.

      All the best

  5. Dr Dohbit Sama says:

    This sounds very great! We know many types of eye surgery cannot be done in Cameroon. With the advent of this center, many things are surely going to change in the health landscape of our dear and beloved country, Cameroon! I wish you God’s abundant blessings.

  6. Dr Mvé Josué says:

    At long last! this is a great initiative which hopfully will finally adress the great majority of those really in need of eye care. I look forward seing the start up of the training program of the center, for we need to align with the new surgical procédures.

  7. MBANG Ruben Ledoux says:

    Dear Dr. Henry and Team,
    Greetings. Really overwhelmed with project site development. What blessing it really is accomplishing such great a vision and what privilege, pride and great honor attached to pioneering the provision of cutting edge eye care services within CEMAC sub-region. Really a NEW BABY BORN to Central Africa. What breakthrough lies in its completion. May God bring you to an expected end.
    Blessings to the team.

    I think this is going to contribute a great deal to realising vision 2020. Courage and strength to those piloting this great project and I pray as well that Cameroonians will also be given some chances to practice and put to test their own abilities.

  14. Yuh S.N says:

    I have been following up with the progress of this great project and I am sure that Cameroon will soon be on the right path to prevention of blindness, especially with various sub-specialties that will be involved. More grease and protection to the partners and setting up teams which is the crucial stage as the “quality of the foundation equally determines the durability and strength of the building, especially the storey building”. Remain blessed.
