The European Union and the Libyan Ministry of Health officially launched five new EU-funded projects on 19 June to support the Libyan health sector. The projects cover a broad spectrum of priorities of the health system in Libya, with specific focus on primary health care services, blood transfusion safety, nurse and midwifery education, mental and psychosocial support as well as prevention and management of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The cumulative budget donated by the EU to these five projects is approximately €13 million.
