openIMIS initiative supports the management of HIV scheme in Cameroon 

As part of a support measure through the openIMIS Catalytic Implementation Fund, the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute will support the implementation of openIMIS for managing the Ministry of Health’s HIV user fee elimination scheme. The implementation focusses on  

  • fine-tuning the existing standard operating procedures,  

  • deploying the latest release of openIMIS with required customizations,  

  • and supporting the establishment of a local openIMIS community of practice.  

With multiple schemes relying on openIMIS in Cameroon, a vibrant local community of practice will be able to exchange knowledge and information on openIMIS amongst themselves as well as with the global openIMIS community.
