UB, HIAMS Renew Partnership, Develop Better Health Policies 

By Basil Kongyuy

The University of Buea and the Higher Institute of Medical Sciences have renewed their partnership for nursing development and training for better health care provision to the society.

The partnership renewal, which coincided with the Cameroon nursing conference and seminar, also featured the drawing of policies that would go along in tandem with health care needs and the evolving society. Speaking during the ceremony that held at the UNESCO Building of the University of Buea, February 23, presided at by Southwest Governor, Koumpa Issa, the UB Vice Chancellor, Prof. Vincent P.K Titanji said, the partnership with HIAMS, comes a long way.

The Executive President of HIAMS, Michael Boyo, said the training was aimed at meeting international standards. “The medical personnel we train are tutored according to British and American standards, hence they can serve any where in the world,” Boyo stated. He said the medical personnel are drilled to manage community health care and its ramifications effectively.

Asked about the arrogance attributed to medical staff in hospitals, Boyo said: “You can verify with the institutions where our graduates are working and you will find that they make the difference.” The programme is sponsored by a British Council grants which was won by HIAMS a couple of years ago.
