The Pasteur Center of Cameroon (CPC) is a technical body of Cameroon’s Ministry of Public Health, a hospital institution with financial autonomy and legal personality. It was established in 1959 in Yaounde; it has had an annex in Garoua (CPCAG) since 1985, and since 2004 it has had an office in Douala.
The CPC is a member of the International Network of Pasteur Institutes (RIIP). Center Pasteur contributes to the fight against disease and the promotion of health through the care of Cameroonian patients and the prevention of international health risks through the surveillance of endemic and epidemic diseases, scientific research and the training of health personnel.
Thus, this mission is divided into 3 strategic areas:
• To make available to the maximum number of Cameroonian patients and customers an offer in medical biology and in Hygiene and Environment at the lowest possible price; hence our slogan: “Excellence in biology accessible to all”.
• To contribute to the fight against infectious diseases in Central Africa through biological and epidemiological surveillance activities,
• To establish national recognition and make the CPC an internationally recognized Scientific Research Institute.
