The medical sector in Lebanon is confronting several problems, not the least of which being the country’s current fuel crisis. The disruption of medications and medical equipment was the most hazardous, and it is now a greater concern than the diesel and energy shortages.
The Banque du Liban, like with every crises, is the primary participant in exacerbating the situation of medical supply importers. In terms of remedies, they are in the hands of people who are worried, who are unconcerned about the plans set up by importers to stabilize the sector and rationalize the assistance it receives.
What worries us the most is that we don’t know how long we’ll be through this, as our sector has only seen promises put on hold.
