"Libya's hospitals and clinics need a steady supply of medicine to treat chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma. Support from the government of Germany ensures that contingency stocks are available in Libya's east, south and west during emergencies," WHO tweeted.

The U.S. Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance is also funding essential medical supplies needed by hospitals and clinics that would help thousands of patients for 3 months, WHO said.

Due to years of armed conflicts and economic instability, Libyan authorities have been struggling to provide proper healthcare and education and other basic services for the people.
