The World Bank (WB) working group in Libya announced, on Monday, the launching of three health programs in the country early next year.

The disclosure came during a meeting between the WB team and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity/ Minister of Health, Ramadan Abu Jannah.

Abu Jannah discussed with the WB officials the activation of three main programs, namely (human resources, economic health expenditures, and primary health care), which the team is working on with experts from the Ministry of Health, according to a statement by Libya's Heath Ministry on Facebook.

The World Bank team provided a detailed overview of the adopted programs and confirmed that they would be a reality on the ground by the beginning of next year with the help of local health authorities.

Abu Janah highlighted that Libya is part of the World Bank and a major supporter of its work, as he emphasized the need to draw on the WB's experiences in delivering services to health facilities and providing technical advice in coordination with the Ministry of Finance and the competent department of the Ministry of Health.
