Statement by the Director General

Let’s continue our common battle against HIV and AIDS

 Dear people living with HIV/AIDS,

Dear partners,

The fight engaged by humanity against the HIV pandemic since more than three decades now, has seen the involvement of major players and leading personalities. It was then a question at the very beginning to reverse the trends, with the aim of giving hope to patients and society in general.

It is in this wake that the First Lady of Cameroon, Mrs. Chantal Biya, has made all her efforts to give to Cameroon, Africa and the world, the glimmer of hope that could come from Yaounde, the research Centre that bears her name. The CIRCB established in 2006 is in fact a source of great aspirations, through a meaningful and essential participation of Cameroon and the international scientific community to overcome HIV and AIDS.

Thanks to modern laboratories and an up to date technical platform, the CIRCB intends to fully play its part in the universal fight against the common scourge. To this end, research programs and routine activities are daily oriented to the wellness of people infected and/or affected by HIV.

In this quest, an essential part is given to scientific partnership. In this respect, the CIRCB intends to develop and expand its collaborations both nationally and internationally. Moreover, the expertise of researchers including Cameroonians from the diaspora is an important added value.

It is together that we will give shape to one of the great hopes of our time, as already imagined by the Godmother of CIRCB at the inauguration of this Centre:

"I am confident that through our engagement, our will and our common resolve, we will make it [the CIRCB ] meets the expectations of our people. So maybe one day, why not, thanks to the work of this Centre, together with those of the global community, we will overcome AIDS"

It is the vision to see the AIDS finally defeated that the CIRCB wants to share to all Cameroonians and to the entire world. Our efforts and contributions to this effect must be common. It is with the contributions taken from each other that we can achieve this ultimate goal.

Prof. Alexis NDJOLO

Director General of the CIRCB
