There is a lack of organizational structures for these offices in 55.9%. Most of the staffs who have worked there were from scientific board, and most of the activities are including training, regular visits and consultations. There are no rewards for the staffs in approximately 83.7%, and in 93.5% of cases there is no specific work description for the staffs, and in 80.5% there is no specific regulations policy.
