Burkina Faso: President Ibrahim Traoré reaffirms his commitment to public health in the Land of the honest People

In a strategic move aimed at ensuring universal access to essential medicines, President Ibrahim Traoré has taken decisive measures to address the healthcare needs of the Burkinabe people. Following disruptions within the CAMEG Association, the government announced the transformation of this entity into a state-owned company, the Central Purchasing of Essential Generic Medicines and Medical Consumables (CAMEG), with a capital of 5 billion FCFA.

This transition marks a crucial turning point in managing medical resources in Burkina Faso.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Robert Lucien Jean-Claude Kargougou, emphasized that this initiative strengthens the sovereign authority of the state in the vital medicine sector.

By making the state the main shareholder, the new state-owned company aims to ensure transparent and efficient governance, as well as stable supply of quality medicines for all citizens.

The appointment of Eric Nakaossebgandin Tougouma as the Managing Director of the state-owned company reflects the commitment to competence and integrity in public affairs management.

With his experience and vision, Tougouma is well-positioned to lead CAMEG towards fulfilling its core mission: providing essential medicines at affordable prices, thus ensuring accessible healthcare for all Burkinabe citizens.

This decision, made in the best interest of the Burkinabe people, reflects President Ibrahim Traoré’s unwavering commitment to public health.

By consolidating state control over medicine supply, the government is committed to ensuring that every citizen can access the treatments they need to preserve their health and well-being.

This initiative demonstrates President Ibrahim Traoré’s vision and leadership in advancing progress and sustainable development in Burkina Faso.
