The Surgical-Medical Hospital of the ASPSC (Association pour le Soutien et la Promotion de la Santé au Cameroun – Society for Support and Development of Health Care in Cameroon) in Bafoussam officially planned from 13 March 2020 to 27 March 2020.
In the morning at 9 o’clock it started with travelling by a chauffeur. It was an interesting transfer taking us across mountains and a lot of green landscapes. The scheduled day of triage brought us some surprises as the local employee responsible for planning has left the hospital on short notice. Our team of doctors with Manuela made the best of it; she was phoning and organizing at the same time to allow the triage and surgical activity to start as planned. The OR schedule was finally filled and the logistics work ticked off, we were looking forward to Tuesday – but it was still not to run smoothly.
