The World Bank human development director, Mrs. Ritva S. Reinikka, will Thursday begin an official visit to Cameroon to evaluate the implementation of the bank's projects on human development, according to official sources.
They said that during the visit, lasting from 14 to 20 February, Mrs. Reinikka will hold talks with the Cameroon's highest authorities on human development issues -- education, health, population and social protection.
The sources said Mrs. Reinikka will exchange views with Cameroonian officials on public health, basic education, secondary and higher education and vocational training.
In addition to a meeting with cabinet minister, Mrs. Reinikka will talk with Cameroon’s development partners.
A field visit planned during her mission will enable Mrs. Reinikka to assess the achievements of some financial projects by the World Bank in support of the Cameroonian government's efforts in the health sector.
PANA reports that 30% of the bank's US$ 1.06 billion commitment in Cameroon is allocated to the human development sector.
