Health ministry demands 188 million dollars for medicines


The spokesperson of the health ministry of the Interim Government, Ahmed Al-Alaqeey, called on the United Nation Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to provide 188 million Dollars to provide for the health care system and humanitarian needs.

In a statement by the ministry, on Sunday, Al- Alaqeey demanded the UN envoy, Martin Kobler, the chief of the House of Representatives (HoR), the prime ministry in the Interim Government and the Presidential Council (PC) of the Government of National Accord (GNA), to liquidate the money amount.

He preferred the money distribution to be organized by the medical authority in the city of Al-Baida to make sure it reaches nationals across Libya. He demanded the money not to be distributed through local councils.

The health minister in the Interim Government, Reda Al-Oukli, confirmed lack of money to buy medicines and the elimination of the government from lists of the WHO. He stated that his ministry is ready to buy medicines according to the list of main items and in lower prices than of the medical authority.
