Welcome to Adele Reproductive Health Foundation (ARHF)
A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER AND CEO

Dear Friends, Partners and Volunteers,

ARHF is a registered community-based non-profit and non-political organisation founded in 2000 by Gwewasang Martin. It is registered in Cameroon under various ministries (Territorial Administration, Health, Youth Affairs & Civic Education, External Relations, Secondary Education, Women Empowerment and Family, etc). It is located in the economic capital of Douala, Bonaberi, Mambanda, Grand Magazine, street 4065. We focused on providing Reproductive Health and Family Planning (RH/FP) services to hard-to-reach communities in three regions (Littoral, North and South West) regions.

Small as it is, we are a fast growing center, basically becoming a reference center for Family Planning and Contraception (FP/C) in the Mambanda local government area in the economic capital of Douala. It was hitherto a health centre and with the advancement of the services offered, it has gradually gained the status of a Foundation. The Foundation is already dominating even some very popular medical institutions in Mambanda which have stood the test of time and have been widely acclaimed as offering exceptional health services. The number of patients the project receives daily is constantly increasing from 5 to above 20, especially on Mondays.  Many of them do testify that they were informed of Foundation by other patients who have been to the Foundation and found the services to be of high quality. Given the reputation of Foundation health facilities for quality and diligent medical care, we receive clients/patients from all over the town and from other parts of the Littoral Region and other regions.

We also offer training opportunities to community healthcare providers to prepare themselves, not only for careers in a wide range of fields, but also for, citizenship in the 21st Century. The staff strength stands at 3 permanent, 1 family health clinician, 2 specialists, 1 general practitioner and over 100 volunteers as at July 2019 The working week runs from Monday to Friday, with Saturday and Sunday, only critical services are offered. Work starts each day at 07h 30 with devotions and continues for 18 hours. The services offered include general consultation, observation of patients on infusion fluids, dental treatment and injections, pro-pharmacy, HIV and AIDS work, laboratory services, antenatal care services, women health program, Tuberculosis, diabetes clinic, and cancer of the breast services.
