Tripoli, 05.05.2015(Lana) NSG Minister of Health, Ali Abusada
revealed that budget delay and bad management of the health sector by
the previous governments, besides marginalization of Pharmacy
Department lead to deterioration of the health sector and problems
facing the ministry.
In a statement to the government website, he said the ministry is
facing many problems including lack of clear pharmaceutical vision
and policies in ordering medical needs and burdening the Supplies
Body- being the authority responsible for importation of
pharmaceuticals and medical equipment.
Abusada formed a crisis committee for the eastern part of the
country to provide medicine in coordination with medical Supplies
Body, and indeed several shipments were made available and
distributed to hospitals and health centers at that area.
On his part, Khalid Shatiwi head of Medical Supplies Body said
the main problem facing importation was not approving a budget for
2014 pointing out that the body is working to overcome the problem
