Speaking to the cheerful Nurses and Midwives and health science students, the Undersecretary in the National Ministry of Health Dr. Victoria Anib Majur said “Nurses and midwives are important assets of the health care delivery system.  adding that “without well-trained nurses/midwives, we won't reduce maternal morbidity”.

The Undersecretary thanked the South Sudan Nurses, Midwives association and partners for ensuring that the Nurses and Midwives in South Sudan are valued as an important asset to the health sector.

“I want to thank SSANAMA and partners for making sure Nurses and midwives are recognized and are placed at the heart of the health sector in South Sudan in providing quality health care” Said Dr. Anib.

On his part, the Chairperson of the South Sudan Nurses and midwife’s association Mr. Repent Khamis said its important awareness is intensified on the important roles Nurses and Midwives play in health care system setup.

“Awareness of public on important roles nurses and midwives play in health care provisions is very crucial in the health sector setup” Mr. Khamis told Nurses and Midwives at El Sabah hospital.

UNFPA’s representative during the occasion Dr. Hassen said Nurses and midwives are the foundation of health care system who care for the sick in the hospitals and communities and open work under severe pressure and harsh conditions.
