That was the reaction of the Minister of Public Health following the inauguration and the handing over of the Samuel Eto’o Pavilion to the Laquintinie Hospital in Douala.
This pavilion is offered to us by a worthy son of Cameroon, Samuel Eto’o. We thank him especially that the pavilion built by Samuel Eto’o is aimed at young children since it is intended for pediatric emergencies. Samuel Eto’o is going through this pavilion to contribute to the decline in the infant mortality rate but also improve the care of the health of the young child in the city of Douala. So it is a very important gesture because it is unfortunately the fringe of our population that is the most vulnerable because this is where the mortality rate remains very high. The Minister of Health is there to show the Government’s gratitude to this worthy son. It is also a call to the souls of goodwill who have the means to contribute to the health response because it is not only in Douala that there are young children. There are in all corners of Cameroon, and wherever we can strengthen the mother and child axis. By strengthening this axis, we can not only save the mother at the time of childbirth but afterwards ensure that this child came by the mother can grow. That is the cooperation and especially the fine gesture we are making today. Today is a great time for public-public partnership.
