Cameroon is a country in Central, Sub-Saharan Africa. The chance of dying in childbirth there is more than 30 times higher than anywhere in the U.S. The World Health Organization estimates that 830 women die each day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and child-birth and most are in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Vision of the CAMEROON-ARIZONA PARTNERSHIP is to eliminate preventable maternal and early neonatal mortality by training and retaining physicians in Cameroon, for Cameroon, as well as building a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership between our communities. We work with a model that has been proven successful at increasing the number of trained specialist doctors in a developing country. We help our colleagues in Cameroon train doctors. These doctors, in turn, will help train the next group of doctors.
As well as helping Cameroon, you help the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. Programs like this help draw and keep in Arizona the kind of doctors you want in your community-the ones who work hard, give back, and look for opportunities to make a global impact.
