 As part of the Ministry’s efforts and intentions to enhance health services and promote this key sector, the Government of National Unity (GNU) is preparing to open 22 sub-rooms in various towns and areas of Libya, which will be connected to the two main rooms in Tripoli and Benghazi.

In this regard, Dr Ali Al-Zanati, Minister of Health, launched the Central Emergency and Operations Chamber in the Eastern Region, which will work 24 hours a day to receive daily citizen reports and complaints, coordinate between isolation centres to provide for their oxygen needs and record vaccination and infectious disease program statistics.

The Minister praised the work of the teams that co-founded the Chamber, emphasizing the critical role they would play in providing great services to citizens, as reported by the Ministry’s information office.

According to the Ministry, the strategy comprised training of emergency room and central operations team components in conjunction with WHO to equip personnel to track health conditions and services in hospitals and health institutions across Libya via the Eastern Central Emergency and Operations Room.
