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 2019, the whole population is still affected by the armed conflict and the lack of a functioning government, and 823 000 people will still need humanitarian assistance (including 554,000 people in need of health care services) throughout the whole assessed territory in Libya. 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. On April 4th 2019, the Libyan National Army (LNA) under the guide of General Haftar, announced the beginning of a large scale offensive against the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli. Soon after, the southern neighborhoods of the city were engulfed in the conflict. To date, continued clashes, involving the use of heavy weaponry and airstrikes, affected 500,000 people, and displaced over 100,000 people within the Libyan capital, to the neighboring cities, and, more recently to Tunisia.

Throughout 2019, in Benghazi and its surroundings, the situation remains calm even though tensions and heavy fighting took place in other towns of the country (Darnah, Tripoli, and Sabha). In eastern Libya, the situation remained relatively stable, allowing PUI program’s to progress despite bureaucratic interferences. However, this fragile equilibrium could be rapidly overturn depending on the evolution of conflict. Premiere Urgence Internationale (PUI) is monitoring closely the events and, is evaluating potential scenarios to adapt its humanitarian response. The violation of human rights and humanitarian law remain high countrywide, including of children and women’s rights. Important levels of gender-based violence are reported.

OUR ACTIONS ON THE FIELD

To date, PUI has mobile health teams operating in the entire eastern Libya, two of which targeting vulnerable communities in urban setting and one targeting refugees and asylum seekers in detention centers. In the view to extend its operational coverage to all Eastern Libya, PUI conducted an exploratory mission in the Al Kufrah region (southeast Libya) in order to identify the specific needs of this isolated area and develop an adapted humanitarian response. Since then, PUI started to implement comprehensive health related activities to ensure a continuous access to essential care with the opening of Al Kufrah office in August 2019. To note, due to important bureaucratic restrictions, the humanitarian intervention in Libya is being managed remotely from Tunis.
