15 November, 2018

Hi Didier,

Great to hear of the setting up of AJC_PROSANTE in Cameroon. It's definitely a great initiative to address the numerous health challenges through health promotion. There is no doubt that a well planned and sustainable health promotion programme will bring positive changes /healthier lifestyle in the population, thus contributing significantly in reducing the burden of diseases in Cameroon. For your information, I have 34 yrs' experience in the field of health education/health promotion at the Ministry of Health & Quality of Life in Mauritius. In case you need any help or advice from me, do not hesitate to contact me.

I wish AJC PROSANTE good luck in its endeavour.
