The World Health Organization (WHO) organized Monday, the distribution of a shipment of medicines and medical supplies provided by the French Government to a number of hospitals and health facilities in the southern region in cooperation with the Medical Supply System in Fezzan.

An official in the medical supply system in Fezzan pointed out that the WHO has distributed a previous shipment of medicines in July to a number of hospitals and health centres in the southern region.

Many hospitals and health facilities are suffering a great shortage of medicines and medical supplies, which forced several hospitals to close down entire sections.
