Aweil main hospital running out of medicine

The main hospital in Aweil in Northern Bhar El Ghazal is running short of medicine, the Minister for Health Edward Ayoung revealed during a press conference on Wednesday. He stated that despite the presence of medication in Juba the hospital does not have the capacity to transport it, due to the lack of staff. Tuesday eleven (11) doctors left the hospital due to low wages, currently only three doctors remain.

In addition Edward Ayoung pointed out that the ministry has failed to deliver essential services to the state due to a lack of available funding. He asked for the cooperation of citizens and doctors in Northern Bhar El Ghazal in order to prevent the outbreak of disease.
