Alier said the 2013 crisis and lack of sufficient resources has hindered the hospital from conducting HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns.
“We did not carry out outreach campaign. So we are dealing with cases that have come to hospital such as referral cases sent from other places like in Duk, Twic East and from private clinics around Bor town,” Alier Dhel said.
“I want to talk to the public, to tell them that HIV is real and is there so we need all of us wherever you are, be it in church or wherever sensitize your people tell them that HIV is there. We need people to protect themselves because prevention and protection is the most important thing,” he said.
He is also encouraging the people of Bor to visit the VCT in order to know there status.
