Abiad stressed that “this is taking place while the major countries and international institutions are preoccupied with the events in Ukraine and other global crises as well as their repercussions on global energy and food security.”
 
He then said that “the required reforms in Lebanon are proceeding at a slow pace, which obstructs calls for further investments and support.”
 
The participation in the sixth Annual Health Financing Forum on financing of PHC will be an occasion to search for new partnership opportunities, with the aim of supporting the efforts of the Lebanese Health Ministry in order to enhance and expand primary health care offerings in Lebanon.
