Cameroon is a country rich in history and filled with a multitude of diverse cultures. Unfortunately the country has also been struggling with rebuilding its economy after recent political uprisings. Cameroon also has a very high risk for violent crimes, kidnapping, and terrorism. In 2014, the terrorist group Boko Haram became a major threat in the region after kidnapping 276 female students to be sold into slavery. Kidnap and ransom coverage would also be ideal under these circumstances.

Most expats will want to see medical care in the capital city Douala.
