The Outreach cardiac screening tours have been organized in order to meet the patients in their towns and villages. A team from the Cardiac Center screens the public meanwhile those who already know their cardiac health status take the chance to revisit the cardiologists.

Registration is ongoing in St. Francis Hospital, Ntasen, Mount Mary Hospital, Buea and Padre Pio Hospital, Douala. This activity implements the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Tertiary Sisters of  St. Francis and Cameroon´s Minister of Public Health; namely to collaborate in the control of cardiovascular diseases in Cameroon.
