The programme for the centre was created by the World Health
Organisation who wanted to create a teaching centre and medical practice
adapted to developing countries, where there were very many sick people but
very few doctors. The buildings were constructed in béton brut and building materials included stones extracted from
the foundation works. The centre was incorporated within the site of the
University of Cameroon at Yaoundé.
