The workshop participantsThe workshop participants12 April 2018 – As part of the European Union-funded Strengthening Health Information System and Medicines Supply Chain Management (SHAMS) project in Libya, WHO has conducted a workshop for the Pharmacy Administration, Libya’s drug regulatory authority, based in the Ministry of Health, to set up SIAMED, the WHO model system for computer-assisted drug registration. This was undertaken over a 10-day course held in Tripoli between 25 March and 6 April 2018.

The main objective of SIAMED is to improve the efficiency of drug regulatory authorities, enabling them to assure that marketing authorizations are consistent with their national drug policy.

The workshop was attended by 7 participants from the Registration Department of the Pharmacy Administration. The provision of SIAMED, including its guidelines, installation, training and/or initial start-up operations, is part of a broader programme to enhance Libya’s drug regulatory function.
