Community watchdogs

Between the years 2004 and 2014, the government of Cameroon received about 130 billion F CFA from Global Fund to strengthen the fight against three pendemic diseases namely; HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria, 155 billion is awaited between 2015 and 2017.

Even if these subventions have greatly permitted progress in the health results of the population, their performance is still insufficient: Only 21.6% persons living with HIV/AIDS are under ARV treatment, the mortality rate of children below 5 years due to malaria is 45% despite the fact that treatment is free and 37% of dual TB/HIV infection recorded due to a continues shortage of ARV and cotrimoxazole in the health care center. Since 2012 under the frame work of its strategic axis 2 known as « aid effectiveness », FIS conducted a campaign aimed at developing strategies to supervise and analyze the progress of GF subvention’s performance, also among major stakeholders at national level in view of aid effectiveness of financing.

This is a relentless third generation project in this area aimed at strengthening community watchdog system. We also undertook capacity building of some spoke persons for the beneficiaries of the funds including; 20 community watchdogs, 10 media and as well gave them the means to carry out independent GF financial follow up and to also ensure quality services for the vulnerable population.
