The Health District of Bonassama was the focus of a two-day workshop on the investigation of the level of quality health care within the different health areas of the district. The workshop took place on November 16 and 17, 2018 grouping some 72 participants chosen from 18 Local Community Associations. The training was facilitated by Nkeng Eric and Ngouh Emannuel from the Agency for Contractualisation and Verification (ACV) The agency is involved in financing based on performance. The participants were later sent to the different health areas to conduct a survey and meet patients selected who hasd received treatment in the health facilities who signed contracts with the Agency of Contractualisation and Verification (ACV°. The contracts signed were financing based on performance. The ministry of public health encourages proximity health at low cost and these facilities are paid motivation allowances every three months after a survey. The activity is coordinated by the Regional Fund for the Promotion of Health. During the investigation, the local associations verify the data produced by the health facilities through comparative analysis of the declarations made by the patients treated. The level of satisfaction of the health care delivered to the patient from the bebnficiary populations is compared with the policy for health care put in place by the Cameroon government. This aims at getting the community to appropriate the services received as a means of encouraging quality and quantitative health care for all. Addressing the issue of the project site and target groups, the facilitator Nkeng said the activity is conducted quarterly in 16 Health Districts of Littoral region, notably: Cite des Palmiers, Bangue, Edea, Loum, Njombe-Penja, Yabassi, Nylon, Deido, Nkongsamba, Mbanga, Manjo, Boko, Bonassama, Japom, Logbaba and New Bell.
