IOM provides medical supplies to 14 facilities across Libya

The UN Migration Agency (IOM) delivered essential medical items and equipment Monday to the Libyan Ministry of Health through the support of the European Union Trust Fund (EUTF).

The supplies and equipment will be delivered to 14 health facilities across Libya, and include ultrasound machines, medical monitors, wheelchairs and other types of medical supplies and equipment.

In collaboration with the Libyan Ministry of Health, the donated equipment will be distributed amongst 10 primary health care centres and four hospitals across Libya, in Tobruk, Benghazi, Kufra, Misrata, Garaboli, Tripoli, Bani Waleed, Azzawya, Zwara, Sebha, Ubari and Ashati. The donation comes after an assessment visit conducted by IOM medical teams with the Ministry of Health determining the requirements and pressing needs of the health sector in Libya.

Due to the ongoing conflict and political instability the country is witnessing, healthcare facilities in Libya have struggled to maintain an adequate stock of medical equipment and, thus, provide necessary health care to populations in need.
