Medical supplies delivered to Syrian city by UNListen /
More than 125 tonnes of medical supplies have been sent to the Syrian city of Aleppo over the past two weeks by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The agency reports that it delivered two shipments of surgical materials, medicines, infant incubators, ventilators and intensive care unit beds in both government-controlled and opposition-controlled areas.
WHO says since the start of the Syrian crisis in March 2011, the health situation has been deteriorating, with shortages of medicines and health workers, as well as the destruction of health facilities.
Last year, WHO and its partners distributed medical supplies to more than four million people in Syria, in addition to supporting mobile health clinics and training local health workers.
