On the 27 September, a delegation by NORWAC headed by our CEO Dr. Erik Fosse visited the newly appointed Lebanese Minister of Public Health, Dr. Firass Abiad. NORWAC was accompanied by a delegation from the Norwegian embassy in Lebanon headed by Ambassador Martin Yttervik, and Dr. Abdullah Omari from NORWAC’s partner organisation URDA.
NORWAC received funding for a new project in Gaza last year in May. The aim of the project is to improve the quality of mental health services and provide patients with mental health conditions access to the appropriate medication. The first mission took finally place in March 2022.
