The agreement, officials said, aimed at strengthening health cooperation in the health sector as well as well-being of citizens.

“What we did in the past years is not enough. There is still a lot to be done for the local people according to the agreements between our two sides,” observed Shan Xiang Qian, the Party Chief of Anhui Provincial Health Commission.

The five-member Chinese delegation reportedly donated medicine to the main referral Juba Teaching Hospital.

Shan said the new cooperation agreements would enable the Chinese doctors working in South Sudan to continue providing free medical care and capacity building services.

“Through the training by the two sides, more and more talents and medical skills will be passed by the China medical team and also build ties and cooperation between the two countries,” he stressed.

The Chinese delegation also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for capacity building and knowledge sharing agreement with the University of Upper Nile.
