Credential Verification and Fraud Prevention in HPE

This project has been designed to provide academic credentials verification services for health professions and other programmes in Cameroon. When graduates seek academic and professional opportunities abroad, international credential evaluation and verification agencies find it extremely difficult to get credible correspondence from Cameroon.

The Centre for Professional Integrity and Excellence will create a database of all legitimate graduates from targeted programmes. It will also establish formal communication lines with supervising government ministries to obtain direct information on the legal status schools operating under their jurisdiction.

Through this work, including even with professional associations, CPIE will contribute enormously to fight against the phenomena of fake certificates and fraudulent transcripts.
