The Mentor Initiative, is about to start the implementation of a very challenging program in two health districts in the Southwest Region of Cameroon. Since late 2016, Anglophone regions of Cameroon (Southwest and Northwest) have endured turmoil and violence in what has since become a man-made humanitarian crisis.

This crisis has led to killings, destruction of properties, sexual harassment and massive population displacements. More than 437.000 people, the majority of which have remained in the Southwest Region have left their homes in search for protection. In line with health cluster needs assessments in the Southwest Region, the assessment conducted by the MENTOR INITIATIVE has confirmed the deteriorating public health situation in this very volatile conflict zone. As a result of a dramatic decrease in access to health services, both at facility and community level and the mass displacement of populations, mostly into the forest areas, and the added lack of shelter and low access to drinking water, have created precarious hygiene conditions and exposed these populations to the increased risk of epidemics.

The Field Coordinator manages a very challenging program that is meant to be the start of a longer-term presence of the MENTOR/Solidarités partnership in the Anglophone Regions of Cameroon. The very volatile security situation, leading to serious limitations in humanitarian access, further aggravated by very cautious and sometimes suspicious actors, turning service delivery at times in very delicate operations.
