Parliament's Finance and Budget Committee Wednesday made progress on a draft law that would create a standardized health care card for every Lebanese citizen, though questions over the proposal's funding remain. The bill aims to establish a system of electronic cards that draw from a large database and would provide caregivers with information about a patient's medical history and who is responsible for their health care whether that is one of the various funds associated with security services, the National Social Security Fund, a place of work, the Health Ministry or others.Wednesday, Batroun MP Fadi Saad announced that Parliament's Public Health, Labor and Social Affairs Committee will hold an emergency meeting to discuss allocating additional funds to the Health Ministry in order to secure cancer drugs.
