Medical Coordinator – Yaoundé – Cameroon – M/F At ALIMA


Cameroon is experiencing two major crises that tarnish the country’s security, namely that of the northern front and that of the western front respectively linked to Boko Haram in the Lake Chad Basin and the secessionists of the English-speaking areas.

After a lull between 2018 and 2019, the Far North region of Cameroon has experienced a deterioration in the security situation since the second half of 2019; marked by attacks from the Boko Haram group mainly in Logone & Chari, Mayo Sava and Mayo Tsanaga.

The crisis that had been brewing in the English-speaking area since at least the period of independence was to turn into a secessionist demand with the corollaries of insecurity, population displacements, reduced access to basic structures, including those of health. …
