About Samuel Cumber

PhD graduate in Public Health, Dr Samuel Nambile Cumber of Cameroon investigated the health and well-being of street children in Cameroon.

His PhD thesis was titled: “A Situational Analysis of the Health Status and Risky Factors of Street Children in Cameroon with the aim to develop an appropriate intervention model to improve their health”. Cumber’s study also sought to determine the health, social and psychological challenges and associated risk factors for street children and from there propose an intervention model to improve their situation and also get them off the streets.

He surveyed 399 participants, 80% male and 20% female, aged between 12 and 17 using structured questionnaires analysed through the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 14.
In collaboration with his supervisor, Professor Joyce M. Tsoka-Gwegweni, he published six articles from his thesis within a year.
