Impact on Health


Young people in Cameroon face a number of challenges that compromise their health and well-being. While there are unique challenges for populations in rural and urban areas based on the environment, the majority of diseases which claim the lives of youth can be prevented through education. CameroonFDP incorporates health education into soccer games which provide a fun, relaxed vehicle to teach techniques for disease prevention, such as avoiding risky behavior and proper sanitation. CameroonFDP works with local partners like the U.S. Peace Corps to provide access to reproductive health education and organizes activities every year to commemorate World AIDS Day on December 1.
