Ajdabiya, 19 March 2015:
Ajdabiya General Laboratory has modernized some of its equipment with four new chemical analysers this past . . .[restrict]week.
The machines were provided by the Ministry of Health, and according to the director at the laboratory, Fathi Yousef, there are two more waiting in Tripoli to be delivered.
It will be another 10-15 days before the machines are up and running, Yousef disclosed, as the staff will require special training in order to use them properly.
Ajdabiya has received an influx of Tawerghan refugees from Benghazi as a result of the fighting in the city’s Garyounis district, bringing the total number of Tawerghan IDPs in Ajdabiya to 2,200.
The town has struggled to cope with the population surge, especially in providing shelter and medical care. However, local officials, civil society activists and members of the health sector have worked so hard to meet the needs of the refugees that the Tawergha Local Council held a special ceremony to honour those who had helped them.
