The Pasteur Center in Cameroon (CPC) is a technical establishment of the Cameroonian Ministry of Public Health; endowed with financial autonomy and legal personality. The CPC was created in 1959 in Yaoundé and counts today with two additional establishments: in Garoua (CPC-AG) created in 1985, and an office in Douala since 2004.
