South Sudan health minister, Riak Gai Kok said the purpose of their visit
was to ensure that reproductive health services were available for the
population in the new state and South Sudan at large.This, he said, will be
boosted by a maternity complex nearing completion at Yambio referral
hospital to help citizens in the state.
“I am on a visit to Yambio to make assessment of the performance of the
state ministry of health as well as also our partners who are implementing
health program in this state,” Kok said on Monday.
He said assessment of the work of non-governmental organisations providing
health services would determine whether government renews their contracts
in South Sudan or terminates the agreements.
“The contract will be renewed only when government is convinced that the
particular organisation is doing their work well or else those who are not
doing their obligation shall be subjected to further assessment or they may
not be allowed to be given a another contract,” stressed the health
The high delegation will also inspect the national Health Science
Institution, which was established early this year in Yambio to train
clinical officers, nurses, laboratory technicians and human resource
officers earmarked to deliver service in hospitals across the state.
There assessment, Kok said, will focus on progress so far made in the
health sector, challenges facing the health ministry to give them clear
vision so that they are in position to address those challenges.
