“I planned for new recruits which I believe are a backbone of work. In every work, budget matches with Human Resources and HR matches with Human Health,” he said. “So, what remains here is the issue of adding enough manpower to implement the endorsed policy statement.”

Recently, during a visit to the state, South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir pledged the renovation of Aweil Civil Hospital to meet the public needs of NBGS. However, this renovation is yet to be seen.
