Rights and Permissions

Regulating the licensing and practice of healthcare professions is an essential first step for reforming the Libyan healthcare system. In this article, we identify the overarching principles that should guide any efforts targeted at reforming the regulation of healthcare professions in Libya, and to summarize the perspective of the Libyan Healthcare Society-USA (LHS-USA) on these issues. Our aim is not to advocate for the adoption of a specific regulatory model. Instead, we hope to stimulate debate about the principles of professional regulation, and over the process needed to develop consensus on the final shape of the Libyan regulatory model.
