The Libyan Ministry of Health has signed a public tender project with 137 reputable international pharmaceutical companies in a bid to address the country’s medicine shortage.

The Northern African country has been facing medicine shortage issues for well over 15 years with efforts by the World Health Organisation to improve the medical supply chain management and the health information system.

Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister, Ramadan Abu Janah confirmed that the first consignment of medical supplies has already arrived at various warehouses.

These medicines will be supplied based on a new distribution mechanism based on hospital performance and bed numbers to ensure equitable distribution.

Abu Janah further announced that seven health centres across the country have already received 70% of oncology medicines while other diabetes centres are being supplied medication for chronic diseases.

Local reports indicate further plans by the ministry to implement a digital transformation project, health insurance, and training initiatives aimed at improving medical staff performance.
