Plan has been working in Cameroon since 1996, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, livelihoods and protection.
We support more than 842 communities in 6 of Cameroon’s 10 regions.
Currently, Plan Cameroon is helping to train AIDS Control Committees as peer educators to transmit useful messages about HIV and sexually transmitted disease prevention within local communities in Okola, Meiganga and Wum health districts based in Central, Eastern and North-Western regions respectively.
