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.
