The West African nation of Cameroon enjoys high literacy rates and rich cultural diversity. It is hosting tens of thousands of refugees, forced to flee neighbouring Nigeria by violent attacks by Boko Haram and the counterinsurgency operations of the Nigerian army.
In recent years the violence has spread into Cameroon itself, causing further suffering and displacement.
Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) first worked in Cameroon in 1984. Our work there has focused on providing treatment for displaced people and refugees, and responding to epidemic and endemic diseases.
