Overview: This article states the bad health care condition in South Sudan. The author’s aunt died in Doctors’ Hospital in Khartoum because of the bad health care condition. He argued that almost all the doctors in the Sudan lack of the interests about the patients’ sickness history. They will judge the state of an illness by looking at the information which was proved by their family instead of evaluating by themselves. Also, there are no good condition health care facilities and equipment in the South Sudan. When medications which are not available in Sudan, the patients and their relatives have to move to other country which close to the Sudan. Besides, because of the high rate of tax, most of the doctors in the Sudan have lost, their ethical responsibility of caring for the patient. They care about money instead of the patients.
