After the National Social Security Fund (CNSS) in 2016, it is the turn of the National Health Insurance and Social Guarantee Fund (CNAMGS) to take an interest in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) of Nkok. In collaboration with the administrative authority of this economic space, the CNAMGS launched, on April 8, a campaign to enlist and raise awareness among employers and workers of the ZES of Nkok.

For the boss of the CNAMGS, this operation is in accordance with the decree of November 14, 2008 setting the technical terms of operation of the compulsory health insurance and social guarantee scheme. Indeed, recalled Séverin Maxime Anguile, “This decree stipulates in its article 5 that if the employer fails to declare the public official, the member of a constitutional institution or any other worker in the public, parapublic or private sector, the registration of the latter is carried out either by the request of the person concerned is ex officio by the Fund”.

For him, the registration of employers and workers of the SEZ of Nkok “Concretely translates the strong will of the President of the Republic to make our organization the driving force of his social policy and the pillar of universal health insurance”. The Nkok SEZ was created in 2010 with a view to economic diversification. This space has nearly 10,000 direct and indirect jobs generated by 96 companies present from 17 countries.

“The right to health is a fundamental and universal right. Achieving this universality is an obligation that every employer in the Nkok SEZ must be aware of,” affirmed the general administrator of the SEZ of Nkok. “It is therefore important to banish certain behaviors because the success as much as the failure of your companies depends largely on our way of preserving your health and that of the workers”, concluded Anne Nkene Biyo’o. This registration and awareness campaign ends on April 22.
