The Foretia Foundation has been tackling many of these challenges by focusing on current public health issues and advocating for innovative, research guided health related policies. The Foundation seeks to promote research in health related fields, with the ultimate aim of improving on the health status of Cameroonians. However, the lack of funding has been a major hurdle to health research and development in Cameroon. Young researchers, due to the lack of appropriate funding and support, are unable to develop and publish potentially ground breaking ideas. Ideas which could serve as the evidence needed to revise existing yet failing health policies, or develop new and more effective ones.
