The United States Agency for International Development has allocated half a million dollars in support of UNICEF’s programs to respond to the needs of people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in Libya.

The focal point of these programs is to support the Ministry of Health in launching communication efforts on major risks, community participation and capacity building in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

It is also aimed at assisting the National Center for Disease Control in creating a web-based application to link isolation centers throughout the country with its laboratories.
