Lebanese Health Minister Firass Abiad declared on Monday, following a meeting with President Michel Aoun in Baabda, that the Ministry has received medicines for chronic diseases.

The medicines have started being distributed to hospitals around the country, the Minister said.

“President of the Republic emphasized on his support to hospital’s right, and to supply them with medicines for chronic diseases. Those medicines started to arrive in the ministry and in hospitals, and the citizens will see the results soon,” Dr. Abiad assured.

This will hopefully end the shortage that Lebanese patients have been suffering from or at least bring some relief to the health sector in Lebanon, which has been lacking critical medicines amidst its economic collapse.

Recently, 961News met with AUB doctor Faysal Kak, who revealed the difficulties the health sector is enduring in the country.
