WHO to Assist Local Health Services in Lebanon

With access to medical care, water and sanitation severely limited in Lebanon due to Israeli attacks, United Nations humanitarian agencies have stepped up preparations for a coordinated, regional response to the crisis. //

"Access to health care for injured and patients with chronic conditions is a major concern," according to WHO's first situation report from the country since Israel retaliated to the cross border Hizbollah attacks on July 12.

WHO said it is assisting local health services in Lebanon, to ensure continued access, while the health programme of the UN Works and Relief Agency for Palestinian refugees plans to support them with vehicle, supplies and other logistics.

Measures, it said, have also been taken to step up regional interagency response involving WHO, the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and other agencies.

In the event they are needed, UNICEF has prepared emergency health kits, family hygiene kits and water tanks, water purification material, generators and fuel to be sent to Lebanon, while WFP has made available 25,000 tons of biscuits for the displaced population, WHO said.
