WHO delivers medical supplies to Libya
update:March 25,2020
TRIPOLI, March 25,2020 -- The World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday said it delivered medical supplies for thousands of patients in Libya.
"WHO delivered a shipment of medical supplies for non-communicable diseases to relieve the suffering of 10,000 patients with chronic diseases," WHO tweeted.
"With EU's support, WHO distributed medicines to Tubruk medical center in eastern Libya. It will provide treatments for 20,000 patients for three months, in addition to a trauma kit to support surgical operations in the center," WHO said.
As the country suffers escalating violence and unrest, hospitals and medical centers in Libya are struggling to provide proper medical care to the people.
The east-based army has been leading a military campaign since April 2019 in and around the capital Tripoli, attempting to take over the city and topple the UN-backed government.
The fighting has killed and injured thousands of people and forced more than 150,000 to flee their homes.
