Four medical experts from Uganda and Ethiopia were assigned by IGAD to build up the capacity of the local staff in the state hospital.

WBGS cabinet on Wednesday gathered at the State Secretariat to discuss the report of the IGAD team as they shared their experience in the last two years.

They team released a report outlining the challenges faced by medical practitioners and the general situation of the hospital.

According to the report, Wau Teaching Hospital lacks appropriate waste management and medical equipment system necessary.

Inefficient human resource management such as lack of Job description for the staff is also key challenge affecting the hospital.

WBGS State Governor Rizik Zachariah Hassan thanked the IGAD team for the service rendered.

“We shall put effort to address some of the challenges which our budget can allow articulating that the national government will have to attempt that which is beyond our reach,” said Rizik.

The governor acknowledged said the state is the immediate beneficiary of the Hospital much as it is for the national government.

The cabinet resolved that the report needs more technical approach but admitted that some challenges need quick response.

The IGAD team will officially leave the state next Monday. Their departure will leave a gap in the hospital which has to be filled.
