Medical services have been stopped at Murzuk General Hospital due to lack of medical supplies and equipment.

The hospital has long been suffering from poor conditions, services and lack of medical staff, and a closure of some of the sections due to maintenance, which began in 2010 yet is still to be completed.

The hospital management appealed to the Ministry of Health to provide the necessary capabilities and requirements so that the hospital could continue to work and provide services to citizens of the town, located in southwest Libya.
