I have known Sorelle for over 5 years during her Master degree where her research focused on Africa and homosexuality- Challenges, which attract local and national attention and help to implement new reproductive and sexual policy in Cameroon – Nominator
Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

My contribution is focused on how an homosexuel can be productive without having sex with another sex. At the end of our analysis, we have observed that, homosexuality was a brake to the reproduction. It's why in Africa in general and in Cameroon in particular, this sexual practice is rejected as far as reproduction is concerned. But in the way of having a planning family, we have currently analyzed that , all of people who want to restrict birth used contraception method. There are many include preservatif, Norplant, sterilet , and pilul.

What sparked your passion for family planning?

The way families in Cameroon was growing. I have noticed that families are not less than 9 people per house because of non planning. Women gave birth hazardly without control. They don't know how to use contraceptive method to limit their birth. This is what sparked my passion for family planning

I will strengthen government leadership family programming in Cameroon.
