Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has completed 95% of the medical support programme in the city of Sirte, north of Libya, with $499,000 funding from Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD).
QFFD and QRCS launched an intervention to support the city's almost failing medical sector, which serves a population of no less than 50,000 people, in response to the humanitarian aid appeal issued by the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs for Sirte.



The shipments were delivered to Ibn Sina Central Hospital and four main health centres in Sirte. 

First, a partnership agreement was signed with the World Health Organisation and Libyan Ministry of Health to supervise the programme, a statement noted.
The shipments were delivered to Ibn Sina Central Hospital and four main health centres in the downtown area. Also, a total of 45,500 units of insulin and 20,000 syringes were distributed to diabetic patients.
Upon the completion of the aid programme, it will be covering 50% of the medical needs of Sirte for over a year. The direct beneficiaries include 20,000 diabetic patients and 30,000 customers of the target health facilities, the statement notes.
Last year, a similar programme was undertaken by QRCS to support three main health centres in south Libya with medical equipment, consumables and solar systems, and contracted physicians to provide primary healthcare services.
