Summary of the Problem

A lot of people in Libya need prosthesis but there is a lack of facilities to get them and travelling to the existing facilities is too expensive There is a need to identify where people in need are and where those facilities could be built to provide timely support in the right locations Group of people that would be better able to implement their mission if this problem were solved: NGOs; government; universities and the health stakeholders

Summary of the Proposed Solution

The solution proposed will start from collecting data about where people that need prosthesis are, including from the professionals working on this issues, to identify where facilities needs to be built. The choice of the location will also be based on the easiness of access for people living in the surrounding areas. The resulting data will be mapped and shared with relevant stakeholders to raise awareness about the problem; and possibly raise funding to support the next steps of the project.
