The Minister for Energy and Health Konrad Mizzi and the Libyan Minister of Health Reida el Oakley were today involved in discussions about further cooperation in the health sector.

Through an addendum to reaffirm the principle of an existing Memorandum of Understanding entered into between the parties in 2012, Malta and Libya agreed to further enhance and develop their mutual fruitful collaboration across the health sector.

Both governments further extended their cooperation to the provision of medical services and treatment within the wider healthcare sector and to the provision of technologies.

“Whilst further enhancing the collaboration between the two nations in matters of healthcare, today’s meeting confirms the proactive role that Malta is playing in the rebuilding of the Libyan nation and reaffirms the close relationship that Malta has with the Libyan people,” a statement by the Maltese ministry said.
