September 2019— The World Health Organization (WHO) is delivering
urgently-needed medicines and medical supplies to more than 40 primary
health care centers and referral hospitals across Libya. The supplies,
which are enough to treat 220 000 patients for 3 months, include antibiotics, medicines
for non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, and surgical
instruments. Also included are medicines to treat respiratory infections and
skin diseases, such as leishmaniasis and scabies, that have been reported in
Libya in recent months.
also includes trauma medicines, which were delivered earlier this week to field
hospitals treating patients injured during the conflict in Tripoli, and to
health facilities coping with mass casualties in the south of Libya.
health system is overwhelmed as a result of ongoing conflict , and health
facilities need to be regularly replenished with life-saving medicines and
supplies. Ensuring their delivery to the east, west and south of the country
requires strong coordination. Our priority is to make sure that health
facilities do not run short of supplies when they are most needed,” said
Elizabeth Hoff, WHO Representative in Libya.
The provision of these supplies was funded by the Central Emergency Response Fund of the United Nations (CERF), the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), and the Governments of Italy and Germany.
