Infrastructure poor in south Sudan

Healthcare, sanitation and electricity will be major challenges if south becomes a country.

     

    If south Sudan votes for independence in the upcoming referendum, one of the major challenges will be running a country that has only basic infrastructure.

    Healthcare is basic, with overcrowded facilities lacking skilled staff. Sanitation is poor, as are the roads and power supplies.

    Al Jazeera's Lauren Taylor reports from the southern capital Juba which has suffered years of neglect.
