Through its autonomous AIDS control Unit, CAMRAIL organised a sensitisation, voluntary and anonymous screening campaign in 2006 recording a 2,8%1 prevalence rate.
In collaboration with the National Aids Control Committee (NACC), The Provincial Technical Group and NGOs, CAMRAIL constantly deploys efforts in HIV/AIDS control activity.
Each year, significant financial resources are mobilised against this terrible illness.
73 Peer Educators, 5 Peer Educator/Counsellors and 17 Nurses have been trained locally;
One Physician was trained in Ouagadougou ;
- Over 565 000 free male and female condoms have been distributed ;
- There is effective 100% health care for patients , their spouses and children, as well as acquisition of a set of books and cassettes for sensitisation and the adoption of a CAMRAIL CHARTER for the protection of People Living with HIV/AIDS.
CAMRAIL introduced an ARV (Antiretroviral) policy for infected employees and their families by making cash deposits with network health centre Physicians (DOUALA-YAOUNDE-BELABO and NGAOUNDERE.) This practical decision avoids stock shortages and ensures confidentiality. (The employer does not have the names of HIV positive employees)
