MISSION CONTEXT:

Since 2011, continued conflict in many parts of the country and political instability have resulted in a vacuum of effective governance and caused significant collapse in the country’s political-institutional system. According to assessments conducted by INGOs, the healthcare system in Libya is one of the hardest hit by the crisis, having deteriorated to the point of collapse. In addition, the number of victims as a result of explosive hazards continues to grow. In vast contaminated areas, local populations, internally displaced persons and returning populations are all at risk of death and injury.

The political conflict and humanitarian crisis in Libya is likely to continue well into 2018. In parallel, the economic and political crisis is hampering the delivery of medical and socio-economic services, complicating access and increasing the vulnerability of the general population, in particular of persons with disabilities.

Since late 2014, HI’s Libya mission is managed remotely from Tunis in neighboring Tunisia, however since early 2018 with the lifting of the UN evacuation status and the increased access inside parts of Libya, HI along with other INGOs are gradually increasing international staff presence inside the country.

HI is currently implementing a humanitarian programme from operational bases in Tripoli and Misrata with the following activities:

  • Provision of comprehensive rehabilitation services including physical therapy and psychosocial support for persons with disabilities/injuries, distribution of assistive devices as required;
  • Capacity building, technical support and donations of assistive devices and/or materials and equipment to health partners;
  • Training on inclusion principles to other humanitarian actors and health workers;
  • From August 2018, Non-Technical Survey and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) in north-central Libya, beginning in the town of Tawergha;
  • Provision of Risk Education to conflict affected communities on the risks and effects caused by mines and explosive remnants of war;
  • Support to the Libyan Mine Action Centre (LibMAC) and other ministries in developing a victim assistance strategy and action plan.

Subject to receiving organizational registration, HI also intends to open a new base in eastern Libya with the same activities as described above in 2018.
