"Medical supplies for people living in remote areas near Ubari have arrived thanks to support from UNCERF," WHO tweeted.

"WHO recently delivered medicine supplies across Libya to help 220,000 patients for 3 months. The supplies treat infections, injuries and chronic diseases," WHO said.

Years of armed conflict and political instability makes it extremely difficult for local authorities to provide basic services for the people, mainly proper healthcare and education.
