    A delegation from National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) in Libya headed by Dr. Badereddin Annajar the NCDC Director General visited GHD/EMPHNET between October 19 and 20, 2019.

    During this meeting, both parties explored potential areas for collaboration towards serving the public health priorities of Libya. Discussions focused on areas of field epidemiology, biorisk management, emergency management, immunization, and risk communication.

    By the end of the meeting, both parties identified future steps towards implementing collaborative efforts in support of public health activities in Libya.

    GHD/EMPHNET recently began collaborating with Libya’s National Center of Disease Control. This expansion of GHD/EMPHNET’s network of partnerships falls in line with its goals to respond to health needs across the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR).
