Erratum August 2019

In the 3rd paragraph, 4th line of an article, “How can we bridge the gap between literacy and health in South Sudan? South Sudan Medical Journal 2019; 12(2):66-68, 2019”, the figure for adult literacy rate change between 2008(27%) and projected rate by 2015(32%) was wrongly quoted as 19.18% when it is actually 5%.

Correction: “In South Sudan, the adult literacy rate was 32% in 2015[3], up by 5% from 2008(27%)[3,4] but is still one of the lowest rates in the world today.”
