The district has been experiencing shortage of manpower in the health sector especially nurses. Another issue is the HIV/AIDS pandemic which is depleting both the health manpower and financial resources.
However the district has done well in terms of availability and accessibility to health services. Implementation of primary health care system is also a strength to the district as well as continuous planning process for human resource development, budgeting and materials. There is cooperation between the private and the public sector in relation to health issues.
