Councils in the NWR Setting the Pace for Inclusive Local Governance



In 2015, the CBC Health Services through her Socio Economic Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (SEEPD) Program engaged in partnership with some local councils of the NWR. This collaboration is within the present context of decentralisation in Cameroon with the councils emerging as key actors in promoting community based inclusive development. Presently, the CBCHS is in partnership with 20 of the 34 councils in the NWR implementing disability Inclusive Local governance. With the technical support of the SEEPD Program, the Councils have gone on to carry out different actions and activities to promote the inclusion and participation of Persons with disabilities in local development. Below are profiles of some of the councils who have made remarkable strides to ensure the protection and promotion of the rights of Persons with Disabilities in the Northwest Region of Cameroon.
