BOR, 20 September 2017 [Gurtong]-Abraham Deng Mayen the Director for Administration and Finance in the ministry says all wards are full of patients.

Lack of funds and insecurity in the State has made it difficult for the outside primary healthcare centers to operate according to Mayen.

He urges the State government to lobby for funds such that all the healthcare units including the State hospital are operational.

In other news Mayen said the cases of malaria have decreased in and around the State.

He advised the public to sleep under treated mosquito nets and not to use the nets for other purposes.
