Humanitarian situation and needs: 

After an armed and civil uprising ended Muammar al Gadhafi’s regime in late 2011, the authorities have had difficulties to address pressing security issues, reshape the country’s public finances, or create a viable framework for post-conflict justice and reconciliation. Thus, since 2014, non-state armed groups have disrupted Libya’s political transition. In 2017, continued political instability, ongoing-armed conflict in Libya, particularly internal struggles between local militias, and the collapse of economy, have led to deteriorating living conditions and reduced access to essential services in most of the country. Civilians continue to suffer from unsafe living conditions, with little or no access to health care services, essential medicines, safe drinking water, shelter and education. By today, the whole population is affected by the armed conflict and the lack of a functioning government, and 1.1 million people in Libya will still need humanitarian assistance in 2018. The complex humanitarian crisis is primarily driven by the absence of the rule of law, lack of access to basic services, displacement of population, the collapse of the economic system and the financial crisis.

 

Humanitarian consequences:

In late 2017, suffering from armed combats for several years, Benghazi area was hosting about 45.000 internally displaced people (IDP) coming from different areas in Libya, and 147.000 returnees. Benghazi appears to be, with Tripoli, one of the two main cities to host the more IDPs. Otherwise, while the political situation in Libya remains tumultuous, new patterns of displacement are occurring, with a growing trend of returns reported in the East, and especially in Benghazi. Benghazi and its surroundings appear to be particularly vulnerable locations due to the high damage inflicted by three years of heavy clashes. The violation of human rights and humanitarian law, including violations of the right to life, and of children and women’s rights, are widespread, including of Gender-based Violence. There are alarming levels of gender-based violence and grave violations of child and women’s rights in the current context.

In the Southeast of the country, the tensions between the Tebu and the Zway tribes seriously affects the health system and the access to basic services. Tribe communities, when they are a minority in the area, are suffering from segregation in most of Al kufra’s institutions, including health care facilities. This occurs in a context of underdevelopment and poverty that exacerbates the impact of the conflict on the population in the region. Indeed, this area has been suffering, even before the conflict, from a poor investment from the central government. However, few information are available on this area and its humanitarian needs due to a poor, if not almost inexistent, presence of NGOs.

 

Our actions in the Field: 

Since May 2016 and the beginning of the exploratory mission, PUI is developing an emergency health and psychosocial response that aims to meet the most urgent needs in health care of the most vulnerable populations in Benghazi area. So far, PUI has been focusing on the health care issue, by providing medical treatments and primary health care to internal displaced populations and their host communities in Benghazi city. PUI is recreating an access to health care, via Mobile Health Teams and psychosocial support intervention. Finally, PUI is working on the reinforcement of the local emergency response capacity through the participation in the development and the implementation of a Health Rapid Response Capacities in Benghazi city, including passive monitoring (EWARS) and deployment of PUI teams for rapid assessments and to support the national emergency response in case of confirmed alert.

Thus, PUI has been implementing three Mobile Health Teams providing primary health care and psychosocial support in Benghazi city and performed rehabilitation and restoration of 1 health care clinic. PUI is now scaling up its intervention with the deployment of a new MHT in Great Benghazi. PUI will also start an exploratory mission (multi sectorial assessment) in Southeast of Libya where only few humanitarian actors are present while serious humanitarian needs remain uncovered. In addition, PUI is starting to intervene in Migrant’s Detention Center where Rehabilitation (WASH) and health activities will be implemented. Finally, PUI planned 10 small rehabilitation projects in Benghazi area in 2018.
