Using funding from Germany’s government, the World Health Organization (WHO) has delivered 2 fully equipped mobile clinics to the Directorate of Health Services in Benghazi to supplement primary health care services in the municipality, WHO said in a statement on Thursday.
“These mobile clinics will support WHO’s efforts to increase the availability of emergency health care services for vulnerable people including immigrants,” WHO said.
“The clinics will primarily target internally displaced people and migrants in remote areas who have little access to health care. Each clinic provides a wide range of services, with a special focus on children and women. Gynaecological, internal and paediatric consultations are among the services offered,” the international organization added.
Elizabeth Hoff, the WHO Representative in Libya, said she was extremely grateful to Germany for its unwavering support.
“Over the past few years, we’ve had excellent collaboration with the Government of Germany. Its continued funding is helping us strengthen outreach services in remote communities where health facilities do not exist, are not functional or are inaccessible,” Hoff was quoted as saying by WHO.
“We will continue our efforts to scale up mobile clinics to help more people who may have no other access to health care.”
