Cases of sexually transmitted diseases on the rise in Abyei: Health
officials
ABYEI (15 Sep.)

Pier and Saint Joseph's Clinics in the disputed area of Abyei have reported
increasing cases of sexually transmitted diseases in the area this week,
health officials said.

Hussein Asamany, Lab Technician at Pier Clinic, told Radio Tamazuj that
that the facility records syphilis or gonorrhoea cases out of every three
patients visiting the clinic, saying they have recorded more than 50
gonorrhoea cases so far.

Meanwhile, Ayom Karshom, Doctor of the Abyei Hospital, attributed the
problem to multiple sexual relationships among youth. Karshom called on the
youth to use condom in an attempt to contain sexually transmitted diseases
in the area.
