CBC Health Services Grabs More Recognitions

By Akem Olives Nkwain

The Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Health Services has once again been singled out for its outstanding services to Cameroonians. Proof of this is the reception of two awards, awarded to the organization in separate events recently. Presenting the awards to the entire staff of CBC Health Services’ Central Administration, Mr. Warri Denis, Chief of Administration and Finance said the awards were in recognition of the collective and individual efforts put in by the day. “At a time when the prevailing circumstances warrant that people should give reasons for not being effective, productive, and deadline-driven, we have remained committed and true to our mission. For this I say congratulations. It is such tenacity that has attracted these awards, the CAF pronounced. The first award recognized Prof. Tih Pius Muffih for advancing HIV research in Cameroon. The award was just one out of many awards that were given to the HIV-Free team during the Cameroon HIV Research Forum, which held in Kribi recently. The second award singled out the CBC Health Services as the second-best ‘Promoter of the use of Quality Essential Generic Medicines in the Northwest Region, presented by the Northwest Special Fund for Health Promotion. This award was accompanied by a cash prize of 100.000fcfa, which the CBCHS Central Administration staff unanimously agreed to turn it into the Health Fund of the CBCHS to assist staff with cancer condition. According to Mr. Warri Denis, being recognized as a promoter of the use of quality medicines means that the organization serves more and more people. In essence, he said, drugs are an essential component in healthcare delivery. Receiving the awards, Prof. Tih Pius Muffih, Director of Health Services thanked the entire staff for their constant support to him in prayers and leadership in general that attracted these recognitions. “These are human recognitions and my prayer in earnest is that may God recognize all that which we are doing,” he said. The DHS seized the moment to call on staff to reconcile with one another as the Christmas season ushers in. “Take advantage and reconcile with one, first with a co-staff. If there is any misunderstanding settle it. And secondly, reconcile with your family and be at peace with all,” he advised. The recent awards only come to add to the plethora of awards, which the CBC Health Services has received this year. To leadership, the recognition is the needed push towards efficiency and efficacy in serving the public healthcare wise. ​
