Health: Non-payment of Dues to Prevent 2023 Nurses Association General Assembly

By Bakah Derick 

The Elective General Assembly of the Cameroon Nurses Association (CNA) will not take place this year as should have been the case. The information filtered out from the 10th Scientific Conference of the Association that held in Bamenda recently under the theme: "Invest in the Nursing Profession."

Justifying why the Elective General Assembly has not been previewed this year, the President blamed the members for the non-payment of dues. 

"90 percent of those who plan to vote and be voted have not paid thier annual dues until date." Nkwain Joseph said

According to him, should members update their dues situation, an elective general assembly will take place in 2024. 

Amongst other concerns raised at the conference was the limited appointment of nurses into leadership positions in the Ministry of Health. According to the advocacy, nurses have a career and educational path that allows them to get even a terminal degree and so there is no justification as to why they are not being appointed. While admitting that some achievements have been realized in the area, it was important that a step be taken ahead.

Established in 1999, the Cameroon Nurses Association has as main objective to contribute to the improvement of the health of citizens by fostering nursing education, research, care and management. CNA today has over 4500 members across Cameroon and beyond.
