After a hectic strike from hemodialysis patients on June 29th at the Yaoundé General Hospital, André Mama Fouda, the Minister of Public Health, promises the arrival of the dialysis kits within a week.
Last weekend, hemodialysis patients demonstrated at the Yaoundé General Hospital, blocking access to this so-called reference hospital infrastructure.
André Mama Fouda, explained that the difficulties in the supply chain are the cause of the disturbances in the majority of the hemodialysis centers of the country.
The boss of Public Health said that the government had taken all necessary measures to restore the proper functioning of each center in the short term.
A stock of about ten tons of dialysis kits is expected to arrive in Cameroon by cargo plane and by sea within a week, stresses André Mama Fouda.
At least 2 million people are affected by kidney failure in Cameroon.
