An “emergency response” to a rise in HIV infections in Libya, has been launched by the World Health Organization (WHO).
A lack of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in the North African country, to treat the virus that leads to AIDS, resulted in the deaths of 10 adolescents last year.
The UN health agency says there were more than 6,300 registered HIV patients there in 2016.
Mustafa Al Gamal asked the WHO Spokesperson in Libya, Dr. Ahmed Salem, about the agency’s response.
