According to figures from the Ministry headed by Andre Mama Fouda, poverty remains a perennial factor why the over twelve thousand patients have not been able to receive substantial medical attention.

Presenting the information recently at the nation’s economic capital, Douala, the Littoral Regional Delegate of Public Health, Dr Martin Bea Yamb, explained that the information was gotten through a nationwide registration process for patients to benefit from the medical experts of Mercy ships.

He however lamented over the fact that even though the lack of finance is the main reason why most Cameroonians can’t get medical attention, carelessness and negligence account for the complicated state of most cases.
