Cleto said for the last few months the number of bullet-injured patients received by Juba Teaching Hospital has been below five.
“The bullet injuries have very much reduced recently. Over the last month, we received only two to three patients with cases of bullets,” Cleto revealed.
The Director General made the remark yesterday during the opening of a three-day seminar the seminar organized by ICRC in Juba.
He said the reduction has sent the signal that there was improved security in the country.
He said with more training being organized by the partners on how to help the patients will help to save more lives in the country.
Cleto said the aim of the seminar is to show how to save the patients and to give quality services to the people adding that training will help them to share the experience of what ICRC has been doing around the world.
He said it is the second time of such a seminar in the country after the first one was organized last year 2018.
Meanwhile James Reynolds ICRC head of delegation urged the participants to take the training very seriously so that they may offer assistance under unfortunate circumstances involving bullet.
“We have been doing such seminars in many countries and it helps a lot so I am sure if you are trained you will to be able save many lives of people in this country,” he said.
