“Protect our staff, Patients, Caregivers,” – Prof. Tih Pius cautions at Goals, Budget Review Meeting
Leaders of the Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Health Services have been admonished to make most of every opportunity as they steer the affairs of the organization in the wake of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Rev. Mbuh Julius, Head Chaplain at Nkwen Baptist Health Centre made the call on May 29, 2020 during the Goals and Budget Review meeting.
According to the prelate, making the most of every situation entails acting wisely, paying attention to godly counsel and striving to maintain defined standards. Rev Mbuh drew inspiration from Ephesians 5:15-17 and captioned his devotional, “Make the Most Every Opportunity”.
Prof. Tih Pius, Director of CBC Health Services in an opening statement, called on key leaders of the organization to reduce goals and setup supervision at all levels in their respective facilities.
“At the time we adopted the 2020 goals and budget, the Anglophone Crisis was the major problem steering us to the face. We accepted our goals and budget on the basis that the situation will get better and our patient turnout will increase or will drop if the situation got worse. But barely 5 months into the year the coronavirus has come to compound the situation. The Coronavirus, I must say, is worse than HIV/AIDS,” recounted Prof Tih.
“In the face of Coronavirus pandemic that is sparing no one, you must do all it takes to “Protect our staff, patients and caregivers against this disease,” entreated Prof. Tih.
The Director took out time to appreciate the leaders of CBC Health Services for the hard work they are doing in the field to keep the organization above the waters in challenging times like COVID-19. He urged them to think strategically for the bigger picture of the organization during and after the goals and budget review sessions.
It is worth stating that the goals and budget review session was aimed at looking at the trends and adjusting goals accordingly for the current year. The in-camera meeting also provided the organization’s kingpins to review on postings and transfers of staff.
