Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health Ramadan Abu Janah has signed a memorandum of understanding with the International Medical Center in Egypt.

Through the MoU, the medical centre in Egypt will receive Libyan patients with muscular dystrophy, tumors, and spinal muscular atrophy. It would also provide treatment for patients needing liver, kidney, and marrow transplantations, spine surgeries, and complex heart and neurosurgeries.

The MoU also stipulates that Libyan patients will pay the same as Egyptians per the lists of therapeutic benefits, with the specification brochure for the contracting process and the completion of the stages of purchasing treatment services.

The Ministry of Health noted that the agreement allows the exchange of professional and scientific experiences and the sharing of databases in order to achieve added value and benefit.

 It said the MoU came out of its desire to improve the lives of citizens by enhancing the readiness, flexibility, and rehabilitation of the Libyan health system, reflected in the localization of treatment services in Libya.
