Cameroon

In August 2018, INNTRA was invited by a group of psychologists specializing in psychotraumatology who were  working with Boko Haram survivors in the Northern part of the country, as well as Seleka, in the Eastern region. INNTRA met several specialists, visited structures and collected valuable information in Yaoundé, Douala and Kribi.

Strong synergies with orphanages, artists and a local adolescent trauma recovery centers were built and all the resources needed to develop and run a future treatment program were secured.

Objectives 

  • Mobilize a pool of researchers for solid and long-term.scientific observation on trauma and treatment;

  • Facilitate the coordination needs between multisectoral parties from public and private sector

  • Organize the first Pilot Program by July 2020.
