The General Director of the Turkish-Libyan Friendship Center for Physical Therapy in Misurata, Abdulraouf Badi, said that the establishment of the center is a historic opportunity to develop physiotherapy services in the city, and in Libya in general.
Badi added, in an interview with Arraed, that the establishment and equipping of the center came as a support and gift from the Turkish people to the Libyan people, explaining that the center contains 32 beds in 36 rooms, and the diagnostic radiology department, which includes x-rays, a magnetic resonance device, and a medical laboratory.
Badi pointed out that the most important obstacle facing the center is the lack of medical personnel, especially nursing, stressing their continuous efforts with the Ministry of Health and the Intermediate Nursing Institute at the Misurata Medical Center, to fill the shortage in nursing.
Badi indicated that the center seeks to localize treatment at home, and take care of athletes’ injuries, the wounded in military operations, the bedridden, the elderly, and children with disabilities.
It is worth noting that the Ministry of Health received, on Monday, the Turkish-Libyan Friendship Center for Physiotherapy in Misurata from the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency “TIKA”.
