Public Health Minister Mondher Zenaidi took part, on Monday afternoon in Tripoli, in the opening of the 8th Libyan-African Health Care Exhibition, held on September 27-30, 2010.

The Minister visited the various wings of the exhibition. He was accompanied by Mr. Mohamed Mahmoud Hijazi, Libyan General People's Committee Secretary for Health and Environment, with attendance of the General Representative of the Tunisian Republic in Libya.

The minister enquired about the products displayed which represent a variety of health care fields, notably the medical equipments and pharmaceutical industry.

The Tunisian participation in this fair is the most important, on the level of foreign participation, with the products put on display representing more than 30 firms from various sectors, notably medical services, medicament industry and medical accessories, as well as spa and thalassotherapy.

The Tunisian stand also houses a space highlighting the gains made by Tunisia, since the advent of the Change, in the public health field, notably in matters of promotion of health indicators and adaptation to modern medicine, as well as the tributes rendered to Tunisia by the international authorities.

An important Tunisian delegation, made up of representatives of the concerned professional, public and private structures, as well as the medical and sanitary structures, took part at the opening ceremony of this fair. Members of the delegation, on the occasion, had talks with their Libyan counterparts on the prospects offered to strengthen and further diversify bilateral co-operation in the medical and sanitary field, as well as on the opportunities to boost partnership in the different fields.

Messrs. Zenaidi and Hijazi chaired, on Tuesday, a working session which reviewed progress of bilateral co-operation in the health field and furtherance of the implementation of the memorandum of understanding signed between both sides in October 2009.

The meeting, attended by Tunisia's General Representative in Libya, made it possible to stress the level reached by the excellent Tunisian-Libyan relations and keenness to further raise them to higher levels and diversify them in all areas, particularly health, in line with the will driving the two countries' leaders.

The two sides emphasised the importance of making the most of the co-operation opportunities offered in the manufacture of medicines, vaccines, training of medics and paramedics, organ transplantation, preventive medicine, fight against emerging diseases and development of quality systems.

They also underscored the need to boost co-operation in carrying out surgical interventions in both countries by Tunisian and Libyan medics and improving quality of medical and health services provided to patients.

The two delegations underlined the need to regularly follow up progress of implementation of the agreements signed in this field.

They agreed to organise, during the second half of October 2010 in Tunis, the meeting of the technical team tasked with implementing the bilateral co-operation programme in the health sector.
