On April 27, 2017, President Paul Biya received the United States Ambassador to Cameroon, Michael Stephen Hoza, at the Unity Palace. On the menu of their talks, an overview of the national news, and the strengthening of bilateral cooperation.
In particular, Ambassador Hoza announced that an important envelope of CFAF 156 billion has been mobilized by the US government to support public health in Cameroon. The project, the US diplomat said, will provide an effective response to improvements in maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, malaria and other pandemics such as Ebola.
The last meeting between Michael Hoza and Paul Biya goes back to February 2, 2017. In terms of comparison between the two hearings, it is noted that this is the first time that both men talk about the health aspect. Because in general, it is more of the topics related to safety that are dealt with. This is a materialization of the wish expressed on February 2, when the American ambassador said strategically, “it is imperative that Cameroon and the United States jointly examine new areas of cooperation.” Public health thus opens a new era between the two countries.
