Thanks for sharing this Leo, I get really angry reading this because there are several government well paid bureaucrats who are responsible for pushing through small but important changes in our country. This is someones job and sadly nobody can hold him responsible for not doing enough. I understand that we are 100 years behind the west but I encourage Cameroonians to start holding their local representatives accountable for every little thing, they need to understannd their job description. Change can only come when the greater majority will understand that health services such as dental hygiene have been paid for by the tax payer. The baptist mission is doing a great job but then the government needs to have a much broader program and it will not surprise me if the government hass billion of AID money allocated to such projects.

It's a social issue that needs to be addressed. There are various domestic programs that should be implemented.

Instead of just sending dentists, they should learn how to take care of their own. It may be involved with cultural ideas that outsiders can't comprehend.

Dental education starts at home. Children should learn good oral hygiene first from their parents. This only means that parents play an important role in maintaining good oral hygiene for their children. If in any case parents don't have enough money to support their children's dental health care, there's always an organization from the government to support these concerns.

Processed foods are getting more complicated in production and what's actually put in them. Without the right dental care education, an individuals teeth will degrade faster. A good way to increase dental health care for a poor demographic area is to petition your local and national Government for programs.

The infrastructure for dental healthcare in a third-world country is in the hands of its own government. If its own government is not supportive of the education and implementation of oral health care, then progress won't be made.

Since we already know what's lacking in Cameroon, then we must take action to help those children fight tooth decay. We need to share with them our basic knowledge in proper dental hygiene. We could also donate some money or even toothpastes for their use.

The average Cameroonian child is presently facing a challenge that past generations did not have. Dental caries is ravaging Cameroonian children, much as it did in the developed world prior to the emphasis on the use of fluoride and dental hygiene.
