(ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, NOVEMBER 22 - A two-year international cooperation program run by the Italian foreign ministry has financed prenatal clinics in 13 state hospitals in the poorest areas of Lebanon, Italian Ambassador Giuseppe Morabito told reporters at a press conference here on Thursday.

Funded with more than one million euros, the 2010-2012 program by Italy's Cooperation for Development entity, which is part of the foreign ministry, was set up to provide care to pregnant Lebanese women with no health coverage, to train medical personnel, and to renovate and equip clinics.

Italy is ready to examine ''every possibility of continuing to support the Lebanese health ministry'' beyond the end of this particular program, Morabito said. (ANSAmed).
