The practice of bilingualism in some health facilities in the West Region is far from being a reality as the absence of both official languages on posters remains the major concern.
The remark was made on Thursday September 28 by a delegation of the National Commission for the promotion of bilingualism and multiculturalism at the Bafoussam Regional hospital during a 2-day working visit in the West to assess the level of bilingualism practices in public services.
A failure admitted by the Director General of the hospital Dr George Enow Orock who also promised take necessary measures to improve the situation in his institution.
“Bilingualism is still timid here meantime to treat a patient, we must diagnose and convince him in both languages. We will henceforth have a day for bilingualism, multiculturalism and living together here at the Bafoussam Regional hospital ” says Enow Orock
Apart from the Bafoussam regional hospital, the delegation visited the University of Dschang and other structures where they reminded actors of the legal dispositions governing the practice of bilingualism in Cameroon.
The wish of this commission which is touring all ten regions, is to that bilingualism practices be applied on the field.
