The health authorities and polyclinic in Gharyan Municipality, together with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), launched on Monday, a cooperation project in the framework of strengthening primary health centers.

The primary health care development project aims at following up chronic diseases, providing the necessary medicines and analyzes, and opening files for chronic patients for medical follow-up.

The polyclinic of Gharyan is considered one of the largest health centers in the city. However, the facility is struggling to provide an adequate standard of services, due to the failure of health authorities to complete the maintenance work at the utility that has been going on for years, besides the shortage of staff and medical equipment.
