We Need Your Help Now

The Himalayan Institute Cameroon team has spearheaded health initiatives in rural communities in Cameroon for the last 13 years. We need your help now to prevent the spread of disease, including COVID-19, through our public health education outreach and one-on-one health services.

Three Goals We Need to Achieve

As a result of the ongoing political conflict in Cameroon, many hospitals remain closed—creating a critical gap in the current healthcare system. As the communities we serve cope with the realities of COVID-19, our programs are oftentimes the only available health resources that supplement this loss of hospitals. We need to continue to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and bring preventive health solutions to villages throughout Cameroon.

Public Health Education

Public health education classes are led by our expert health educators and focus on the topics that are most relevant to the local population. With staff safety as our foundation, our current priority is COVID-19 prevention as we also continue to offer workshops focused on general first aid, diet and nutrition, women’s and children’s health, lifestyle, stress management, and emotional health.

One-on-One Health Services

At our Total Health Center in Kumbo, Cameroon, and through our mobile health vehicles that travel to rural villages across the region, we have a dedicated team of local health experts who provide free individual health consultations, run health-consultant training programs, and manage a pharmacy and herbal medicine production.

Technical Support

At the core of our health initiatives is a team supporting our day-to-day operations, including the drivers who operate our mobile health vehicles, farmers who grow and harvest the herbs used in our health products, and the health workers who manufacture all of our herbal medicines. The security, repairs, and maintenance of our physical infrastructures and vehicles, as well as the tools and technology needed to carry out this work, contribute to our overall operational efficiency and are essential to the success of our health programs.
