Libyan Health Professionals Trained on Early Warning Alert and Response System
On 27 November IOM, the UN Migration Agency and the World Health Organization (WHO), in collaboration with the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), brought together 47 health professionals from across Libya to undergo a three day-training on Strengthening Disease Early Warning Alert and Response System (EWARS), which they will deploy in Libya.
Another 40 health practitioners will receive the same training during a second session, which will take place from 30 November to 2 December.
The training falls under the projects Strengthening Health Information System and Medicine Supply Chain Management (SHAMS) implemented by WHO in Libya, and Protecting Vulnerable Migrants and Stabilizing Communities in Libya implemented by IOM. Both projects are funded by the European Union.
The two groups of participants are members of rapid response teams and include surveillance officers, laboratory technicians and clinicians. They will be trained on methods for managing possible disease outbreaks of priority communicable diseases.
