The Tunisian Union for Private Hospitals has revealed in a statement that the total debt accumulated by the Libyan state in private clinics amounted to 200 million Tunisian dinars.

The union appealed to the Tunisian Prime Minister and Minister of Social Affairs to hold an urgent meeting to discuss measures that could be taken to solve the crisis and save the private health sector from collapse.

The union said in a statement that the private health sector of Tunisia is threatened with bankruptcy and many clinics threatened to close their doors due to debt and the inability to secure the entitlements of workers.
