Global Fund: Paul Biya in France to raise close to XAF100 billion

Business in Cameroon | From October 9 to 10, 2019, Cameroon’s president, Paul Biya, will participate in the sixth Global Funds’ replenishment conference in Lyon, France.

According to the presidency’s civil cabinet, the head of state’s participation in that conference is an opportunity for Cameroon to raise about XAF100 billion for the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis, and Malaria over the 2021-2023 period.

For the 2018-2020 period, the Global Fund and Cameroon signed four funding agreements for a total of XAF108 billion. According to the fund’s allocation policy, Cameroon must meet all of the co-funding requirements before accessing the whole fund allocated for that period.

Unpaid counterpart funding

According to the civil cabinet, Cameroon has not yet paid the whole counterpart funding needed to access these funds. With these delays, treatment could be stopped with negative impacts on the health of the population, namely, those with high-risk such as women, people living with AIDS and teenagers. The country, therefore, needs to urgently pay that counterpart funding (20%).

During his visit, Paul Biya will also present the measures taken by his government to pay those funds. Notably, the creation of a special account at the BEAC to lodge the counterpart funds of the various projects in which Cameroon is involved, the presidency informs.

According to the same source, XAF20 billion out of the overall XAF21.6 billion, of counterpart funding Cameroon has to pay, has not been raised yet. The UNDP, the presidency adds, is supporting the Cameroonian civil society’s request and is active in helping the country raise the needed resources.

High HIV prevalence

Since 2003, the UNDP’s support to Cameroon is estimated at XAF315.32 billion, via eight grants for AIDS, seven for malaria and four for tuberculosis.

Despite the progress achieved, the ministry of health indicates, Cameroon still has one of the highest HIV prevalence (3.6%) in West and Central Africa, with significant spikes within high-risk individuals (26% with sex workers, 20% with homosexuals, young girls and other teens). The AIDS/tuberculosis combination is still high (about 40%) while malaria was the cause of 48% of less than 5-year-old children’s death.

  1. Keep going around to beg for money to come and kill Ambazonians while you treat them with disdain and contempt. We have learn to live with your violence and arrogance and be rest assured we will outlive you to see a free Ambazonia. Soon this one will also get finish and you’ll be rushing for more.

  2. You cannot even come up with 20 francs to get 80 francs! very sad! But you can pay full bill at Intercontinental plus tip for 100 people! Gone are the days when “foreign aid” was a blank check that was deposited in personal account in Switzerland. No free lunch buddy. The father of money is hard work and her mother is good investment and the beautiful baby is more money. So you don’t have holding your hand out. Too late

  3. More sad stories, will come up when this old idiot closes his eyes soon.
    He has been left to fumble until his dying day. What a great way, to treat
    a fool.

  4. Hihihi Nnôm Ngui! Tu aimes déja le Buzz…
    À peine avoir libéré Kamto te voici á Mbeng!
    La brigade des maquisards dit qu’ils vont finir avec toi le tour-ci…Hihihi…
    Ash, la force de l’expérience de cà!
    Ps: Kamto, Etoudi est vide, dis à ta secte de Baham d’aller t’installer on voit!
    Mbôlô.

      Honestly I wonder I see you comment a lot just like a lot of other people but I’m wondering why are you such a Biya fan. I’m just wondering because it makes no sense to me. And before you get super tribal here I’m a bulu man that grew up in Limbe

  5. Kamto had to be released before this visit,so as to avoid the wrath of BAS.the lion man is now going about with his tail in between his legs.
    He always goes around begging for money without shame.what a disgrace of a president from a neighbouring country.

    Lrc fooled our parents,and used their military to enforce vivre ensemble upon them,but the never again generation is here to put an end to their forceful occupation.long live the Fed Rep of Ambazonia.

  6. Cameroon opens Consolate in Malabo to waste of Taxpayers money! Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea already has one currency and one passport . So, of what use is the consulate? We want one africa and one currency.

  7. Le Cameroun ouvre un consulat à Malabo pour gaspiller l’argent des contribuables! Le Cameroun et la Guinée équatoriale ont déjà une monnaie et un passeport. Alors, à quoi sert le consulat? Nous voulons une afrique et une monnaie.

  8. MR BIYA: u need to know that when a bird is alive, it eats the ants, but when the bird dies, it become meal to the ants..What do we learn from this?..
    Time and circumstances may change at any minute…
    With you its soon GAME OVER..
    U can play your divide and rule game..
    Hate Southern cameroonians, kill and rape their women..
    Kill the northerners…
    Today you are against the BAMIS..as we saw yesterday BAMIS being chased in SAMGMALIMA…
    A day will come when your own people will be the victims..
    And that day is not far ..
    Keep your diapers on and continue your dirty game , you brainless Gorilla that wants to be a LION..
    You cant fool the people all the time…

  9. Rulers want to be remembered for the good things they did to their people..
    Or better say for what they tried to bring unity, peace and justice…
    And PAPA BIYA:-
    – A gorilla who wants to be a lion..
    – Africas greatest despot and killer..
    – He has the highest miniters in Africa in Prison..
    – A war and brutal tyrant thta have killed his own people more then even IDI AMIN..
    – his best game is divide and rule..
    – Even at 86 he still believes he is the best choice of a tired people..
    – He will not welcome new ideas..For any critic, the place for you is KONDENGUI..
    he has turn the people of his village to be the lazy, satisfied with bread , sardine and alcohol..
    HE has sold cameroon to European and chinese..
    The worse human being in the wolrd- he is just evil..

  10. The worse thing that ever happened to Cameroon is this man. All he has done is disgrace Cameroon, from allowing Cameroon to spiral down into one of the worst corrupt countries on Earth and an excellent example of modern dictatorship.

    He can’t pay into this fund, but he has enough funds to buy armour cars and ammunition, train BIRs, all used to kill the same people whose tax money is used to sponsor these evil acquisitions. And Cameroon is at the verge not benefitting from support to prevent HIV and Malaria.

    I still can’t believe how he became the president of Cameroon, a president that doesn’t interact with his people. He didn’t even bother to turn up at his own disgraceful grand national dialogue to talk to his people. He hates his people so much he avoids them. What a knucklehead!

  11. Ambaland has nothing to do with Ripoublique

  12. Le peuple Béti réclame le fédéralisme de 10 Etats.

    Chacun chez lui.
    Nous ne voulons plus du vivre ensemble á sens unique.
    Que tous les non- Béti s’appretent á liberer le Beti-land.
    Comme les jeunes de Sangmelima l’ont crié haut et fort:
    “Bi TE’E ya ” on en a mare.
    On vous acceuille chez nous, et vous venez avec votre barbarie foutre le bordel et assassiner nos freres.
    Vous comprendrez bientot que le silence des Bétis n’est pas synonyme de faiblesse.
    #Sangmelima # Lyon.
    Bi TE’E ya.

    • @Zam Zam, come and dialogue with this hag. It should be interesting to see your line of argument.
      And did you see Field Marshall as the Paramount King of Lebialem? Remember the photo of the old grave in Nigeria you were so happy to talk about?
      “The “sensible” people of Cameron will unite to fight fight to dislodge Biya”
      Remember this quote? Hmm…
      Does that include those sensible ones wielding machetes and sticks in Sangmelima?
      Engage your princess hag here ie @Bikutsi

    • if the BETI-BULU want to be free and have federalism, then its good news..
      If the most intelligent and smart BETI-BULU is Paul Biya, then Good Night to you folks..
      The laziest people on planet earth..
      The biggest thieves..
      In their cities, others help them to get better houses..
      In their cities, people teach them to build simple houses and to live like normal people..
      You steal the countrys wealth for over 37 years and give them, all they can do is drink , sex and dance…
      We are wilkling to sell them for free to GAbon and Equatorial Guniea..Unfortunately they dont even want them…They will prefer to build a wall to allow these lazy Goriullas back in the tropical rain forest..

      The biggest curse and mistake was to allow a BETI-BULU take any form of responsibility in Cameroon..

    It’s almost like black people are insane in the head. How can we be raising money in France in 2019. I mean building an economy is not rocket science. There has to be an underlying trauma that slavery and colonialism left us because there is no reason why our leaders can’t seem to stop begging

    • [email protected] to 55% of the 12 Central African franc treasury props up the euro inside the french treasury and is lent back to the said countries at a perpetual high rate of interest,
      whilst probably also lent to European countries at a negative interest rate ?
      Prove me otherwise but I get the feeling it’s like that since any economic hiccup to this arrangement stops high ranking European and french officials from having tranquil summer holidays and they all sullenly make quick trips to see The trama due to slavery and colonization is in the white heads world ,their lifestyle cant be so well sustained without our assets and money ( keeping us in poverty) and remember it will take a lot of money to reimburse us so the longer it goes on the more they pay……
