A Buruli day took place at the University of Yaoundé in early Nov 2011 with the participation of the Healthcare Secretary. On this occasion it was decided to create two modular courses on A) Buruli Ulcers and B) General Wound Care.
A partnership has been established between the Yaoundé University and the medical faculty of the University of Geneva. Faculty people from Cameroun will be invited by MSF to participate in the EWMA 2012 conference and learn more about wounds and also network with European participants.
The Buruli treatment facility in Akonolinga will start to offer general wound care. Home-based care will be introduced as the hospital does not have space for more than 60 in-patients and patients prefer to stay at home to attend school and working activities.
