The health workers and those who helped in the vaccination of people against meningitis are not yet paid for the work done.

One of the nurses who also participated in the exercise says the government has to prepare fully financially when rolling out such kind of exercises.

Drileba Paul Bishop, the assistant district health officer in charge of maternal child health says the exercise was funded by the world health organization and it is not only Arua district that has not received the money, but there are other districts in a similar state too. He appeals to the people to be patient.

Much as the program of distributing mosquito nets is soon beginning, Drileba urges those who helped in the vaccination exercise if the district requests for their service they should be positive since the fund that will be used for the district is a funding from another partner.

The health workers are therefore requested to perform the work given to them with commitment. END
