The South Sudanese and Zimbabwean governments are still embarked into discussion  concerning the issue of health workers export to the South Sudan.

This was revealed by Minister of Health and Child Care David Parliamentary in Parliament.

"Work is still in progress on a government to government agreement with the South Sudanese Government on a bilateral agreement on export of health workers," he said.

"Should the Government to Government agreement be finalised, such issues will be looked into with advice from the Attorney General's office."

He said this will be discussed with the South Sudanese Government at the appropriate time.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through their embassies, would be able to give guidance on security matters. On how many Zimbabweans have taken this offer, none through the Ministry of Health and Child Care," he said.

"Both the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the South Sudanese Embassy are not aware of the advert in the media inviting State Registered Nurses to seek employment in South Sudan. This was only brought to the attention of the Ministry through the question from Parliament."

The minister said if there are any advertisements to be done, this will have to be discussed by the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the Health Services Board, guided by consultations at the appropriate levels.
