Forty percent of Cameroon's population lives below the poverty line. Its vulnerable citizens are at a high risk for contracting infectious diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS. The country faces high rates of child and maternal mortality. Abt is working with key private and public sector stakeholders to strengthen health systems and ensure the use of best practices. Through technical assistance and implementation efforts, we’re working to reduce the contraction of infectious diseases, particularly malaria. Additionally, Abt's value chain strengthening efforts are boosting regional trade in staple crops and global exports of high-potential products.
