In 2012 the Prime Minister of Cameroon invited BG真人 to invest in high quality eye health services in the country. In 2014 BG真人 entered a partnership with public hospital 雅温得中心医院 (YCH) to establish a comprehensive eye-care service programme. 同年, BG真人 entered into a private partnership with non-profit organisation The Magrabi Foundation to establish a Paediatric Teaching and Training Centre at the Magrabi International Council of Ophthalmology Cameroon Eye Institute (MICEI) which opened its doors in March 2017.
