Baladiyati programme, with the generous support of the European Union in Libya, is enabling access to life saving health services for women and children. This assistance becomes of particular importance as Libya, together with the rest of the world, is struggling to continue with service delivery in the very challenging COVID19 situation.

An estimated 120,000 women and children will benefit from some 82 tonnes of lifesaving and essential medicines supplies that have arrived in Libya; the supplies are essential to the implementation of an integrated Maternal Child Health programme.

Besides, in Misrata, Baladiyati is supporting the Department of Health Service to ensure that everyone in the community can access a stronger healthcare system. With funding from the European Union, Agenzia Italiana per la Cooperazione allo Sviluppo – AICS Tunisi, will start working this month to supply essential equipment to polyclinics and primary healthcare centres and units, and over thirty medical service providers will be offered specialized trainings on core clinical and management principles.
