The European Union announced an additional $21 million contribution to Lebanon's health care system Tuesday, as part of its ongoing assistance to secure affordable medication and vaccinations for the country's most vulnerable residents.He added that the ultimate goal is to provide Lebanese citizens with a health ID that could be used at all primary health care centers.To ensure that donated medicine and vaccinations are responsibly allocated to vulnerable people, primary care hospitals throughout the country communicate their monthly needs and medical cases to a ministry representative who then transmits that information the central dispensary in Karantina. Tuesday's donation marks an accumulative $196 million that the EU has donated toward Lebanon's health sector in the past four years to mitigate the impact of the Syrian crisis.
