Frame-of-Care-ProjectThe project integrates a strategy of multi-dimensional care for HIV/AIDS with a program of prevention and treatment for HPV/Cervical Carcinoma like development of a more complete action for promotion of reproductive health.

The work presently promoted by New Humanity covers a global approach to the promotion of women’s health in the Region surrounding Fontem, Cameroon. The project pays particular attention to the sociocultural context in the provision of the medical care and takes advantage of the synergy for health intervention against AIDS and Cervical Carcinoma.

In the Cameroon, AIDS has an incidence of 6,9% (2003) and the cervical carcinoma has a standardized incidence for ages (ASR) of 30.1 – 40.0 per 100,000 (2002), but only 5% of women undergo screening. 

This reflects minimal oversight for AIDS, for sexually transmitted diseases, and for Aids-correlated tumoral pathologies.

Frame-of-Care-ProjectLessons learned

From 1996 to 2005, over 6200 tests for HIV among the female population were carried out by the hospital in Fontem with a median percentage of sero-positive women at 54.3%.

In November 2005,  the hospital began an oncologic service for the prevention of cervical pathology.

The conventional screening for cervical carcinoma carried out for HIV-positive patients becomes effective when introduced in the follow-up and offered to the local population caught spontaneously.


  • Frame-of-Care-ProjectConceptualize the implementation of a service for women in the health, social and cultural fields.
  • Continuously train local personnel (medical, nursing and technicians) using tele-medicine connections with Centers of Excellence.
  • Create a collaborative network between Cameroon hospital structures.
  • Introduce a vaccination program.

Fighting the loneliness epidemic

The former U.S. surgeon general and others encourage ways to address the risks of social isolation. Moments of tragedy are often times when neighbors also come together to show their solidarity and support, but after a few weeks or months, that sense of caring for one another can fade into the background.

Barcellona 2018 "The art of care today: healthcare professional in dialogue "

Hello! If you are a young healthcare professional or a medical or biomedical student, you may probably be asking yourself these same questions as we do while we work in the health field: How can I prevent scientific and technical development from prevailing over the human meaning of health care professionalism?·How can I face extreme situations such as severe disabilities, end of life or loss of consciousness?· How can I confront the dilemma between patient’s choices and the ethical duty of each healthcare professional?·How can I give my best without running the risk of burnout?·How can I manage conflicts of interest, always hidden behind our work?
