Libya Risks Running Out Of Necessary Medicines By End Of March, U.N. Official Says

Reuters: Libya could soon run out of life-saving medicines: U.N.
“… ‘Our estimation is that by the end of March, Libya may run out of life-saving medications which will impact about one million people,’ said Ali Al-Za’tari, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator for the North African country. … His main concern at this point is scarcity of medicine needed to combat diseases like cancer, and the state of hospitals in Libya, which has descended into anarchy since the uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi five years ago…” (Georgy, 2/23).
