HIV/AIDS, Malaria Tuberculosis

Impact on Economic Development

The second edition of the ceremony to celebrate public–private partnership to fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria within the work milieu was held in Douala recently. The partnership celebration demonstrates the reinforcement of the activities of companies to fight the three diseases. During the event, the representative of the Minister of Labour and Social Security, Ntocke Oscar said health has an impact on economic development as it affects the output of companies and diminishes household revenue; hence the need for companies to accompany the government in fighting against the diseases. The celebration comprised presentations on the state of the illnesses in Cameroon and efforts made by some companies to combat them. The best examples so far are coming from companies like the CDC, PHP, Hevecam and Chococam, who were handed awards of encouragement.
