Workshop organized by Health Promotion Alliance Cameroon (HPAC) in collaboration with D & L Foretia Foundation, Cameroon and CHO NGAFOR FOUNDATION
Theme: Revisiting the concept of Health Promotion in Cameroon for a post COVID19 World
“What does this mean for our communities?”
In recent decades, the concept of HP has received increasing global attention. In 1986, the first international conference was organized by the WHO in Ottawa, Canada, which led to the creation of the Ottawa Charter. This Charter is a landmark document and has been influential in informing the conceptualization, goals, and implementation of HP. The principles of HP set forth in this Charter are still used as a reference document to guide theory and practice. The Charter presents five action areas: design healthy public policy, create supportive environments, strengthen community actions, develop personal skills, and re-orient health services using three strategies—enabling, mediating, and advocating—to improve health...........
Our #BB21 project with the support of Ambassade de Suisse à Yaoundé / Embassy of Switzerland in Yaoundé aims to encourage increased engagement in advocacy on menstrual health and hygiene management across communities, provides guidance on building competence and confidence to break the silence surrounding the issue of menstruation in Cameroon around the world.
As a community based organisation, we are currently implementing menstrual hygiene activities where we train young women and girls in Social enterprise delivering health education and selling reusable sanitary pads.
A key challenge for menstruating girls and women in low-resource countries and around the world in similar communities is the inadequate and unreliable supply of menstrual products. Training girls in different communities will give them the opportunity to stay in school, economic freedom, manage menstruation with dignity as they cacao produce their own pads
