During the meeting, Imadiddine called the ministry of health in Egypt and gave instructions to provide the Council, for a period of 30 days, with a mobile health unit (a car) equipped with essential medical and radiology equipment and technicians. The aim is to conduct free of charge tests on women aged 45 years and above in rural areas in Lebanon which will help in early detection of breast cancer, as well as, diabetes and blood pressure diseases.
