Context:

Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a Humanitarian, non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilian victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by addressing their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads on average 200 projects per year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 6 million people in more than 23 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, and Europe.

Humanitarian situation:

Libya’s political transition has been disrupted by armed non-state groups and threatened by the indecision and infighting of interim leaders. After an armed uprising ended the 40-plus year rule of Muammar al Qadhafi in late 2011, interim authorities proved unable to form a stable government, address pressing security issues, reshape the country’s public finances, or create a viable framework for post-conflict justice and reconciliation.

In 2016, continued political instability and ongoing armed conflict in Libya has led to deteriorating living conditions and reduced access to essential services for a significant part of the country. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) remain one of the most vulnerable population groups as they seek out temporary shelter and scarce livelihood opportunities in urban centres, many without access to basic services. The power vacuum that gave way to the rise of armed groups in Libya, and the ongoing violence has caused thousands more Libyans to flee their homes in search of protection and assistance. In February 2016, while the political situation in Libya remains tumultuous, new patterns of displacement are occurring, with a growing trend of return reported in the East.

Over 435 000 people in Libya have been forcibly displaced, almost doubling the number reported in 2014. Humanitarian organizations face serious difficulties to reach communities and vulnerable IDP families affected by the ongoing violence in the country.

Health and protection needs of the affected population stand out in terms of scope, scale and severity. This is the result of major shortages of essential medicines and a debilitated primary healthcare system, which have led to an increase in serious illnesses and disease. The conflict has restricted access to basic services, led to forced displacement and impacted people’s safety and security. The displaced are the most vulnerable due to limited coping capacity and loss of assets, particularly displaced women, children, the elderly and those with low economic means. Refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants are also considered some of the most vulnerable, due to their exposed risk to discrimination and exploitation based on their status. According to OCHA, the most severe needs in terms of geographic areas are those of affected people in the east and south of the country.

The worsening economic situation and political crises have exacerbated the vulnerability of the people in Libya, where the main source of household income remains salaries from the state. In the preliminary findings of the MSNA conducted by UN agencies, 71 per cent of households reported that their incomes have either remained the same or decreased. Given the protracted nature of the current crisis, the primary objective is to improve resilience of affected communities. This entails building capacity at national and local levels to generate the evidence base needed to monitor the impacts of crisis, to plan key interventions as needed to address humanitarian and early recovery priorities, and to support the recovery of local economies and rehabilitation of critical damaged infrastructures and public services.

The Libya Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) is based on a number of needs assessments conducted in 2016 and updated in 2018, including the UN inter-agency Multi-Sector Needs Assessment (MSNA), sector needs and gap analysis based on information from ongoing humanitarian operations in Libya and available secondary sources. In areas where conflict and insecurity impeded access to affected people, there are some significant gaps in information in terms of the scale and scope of humanitarian needs. There are also information gaps for some of the sectors, especially where national information collection and reporting systems are weak, such as for protection. (OCHA)

Due to the security context, the majority of the humanitarian intervention in Libya are being managed remotely from Tunis.

Our actions in the Field:

In light with the humanitarian situation described above, Premiere Urgence Internationale launched a program in Libya targeting Benghazi area and other cities where gaps in terms of access to quality health care had been identified.

The main objective is the reduction of morbidity and mortality among conflict affected populations in Libya and to improve access to quality healthcare for population affected by the ongoing conflict in Benghazi and its surroundings by the implementation of mobile clinics delivering a range of medical services.

Targeted as a priority for the humanitarian community by the latest HRP designed in October, the health system has completely collapsed in Libya. This project aims at :

  • improve access to primary health care through mobile health care clinics, including sexual and reproductive health, mental health and psychosocial support interventions, information and guidance on local services, including referral where necessary;
  • support to improve personal health care behaviors for existing displaced populations by reinforcement of community prevention, information and communication;
  • Improve emergency response to new large scale displacement by supporting the creation and the strengthening of an early warning system to develop coordination and cooperation with local actors and relevant authorities to ensure a timely comprehensive response in case of population displacement.

This program is currently supported by DG ECHO, UNHCR, EU Delegation and CDCS (Centre de Crise et de Soutien du MAE).

Due to the security situation, as most of the intervention, this program should be managed remotely from Tunis with potential visit to Libya depending on security clearance (currently on process). Following the evolution of the context, the remote management could be reduced.
