A delegation from Jordan recently met the health minister of Libya Ali Al-Zanati to discuss possible collaboration between Jordan and Libya for providing autism treatment in the African country. If this works out, the two nations will be devising a cooperation mechanism in this regard.
The meeting was held in Amman, the capital of Jordan, and included representatives from the Jordanian Academy of Autism, the Libyan Embassy, the Director of the National Centre for Diagnosing and Treating Autistic Children and the Director of the Human Resources Department, and a representative of the International Cooperation Office at the Ministry of Health.
Representatives from both Jordan and Libya discussed the possibility of a service purchase contract to provide technical support to Libyan healthcare professionals extended from the National Centre for Diagnosing and Treating Autistic Children. They also spoke about the training and knowledge transfer required for this in the fields of expertise where Libya is lacking.
The minister expressed the need to localize the services provided in Libya, as well as the need for multiple branches in different regions of his country given its large area.
