General information on the mission:

Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering 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 7 million people in 21 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, and Europe. PUI Libya mission started implementing operations in East (Benghazi and Alkufra) of Libya in 2017. The organization develop a lifesaving response that provides primary health care services to the most vulnerable population (internal displaced populations and their host communities, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers) combined with an integrated basic needs response to address the overall health situation of the PoC in detention centers and in urban settings.

General Context :

Libya, a mostly desert and oil-rich country with an ancient history, has more recently been known for the 42-year rule of the mercurial Colonel Muammar Gaddafi – and the chaos that has followed his departure (BBC, 2019). The country has splintered, and since 2014 has been divided into competing political and military factions based in Tripoli and the east. Among the key leaders are Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj, head of the internationally-recognised government in Tripoli, Khalifa Haftar; leader of the Libyan National Army, which controls much of eastern Libya; Aghela Saleh, speaker of the House of Representatives based in the eastern city of Tobruk; and Khaled Mishri, the elected head of the High State Council in Tripoli. Islamic State group briefly took advantage of the conflict to seize control of several coastal cities including Sirte, which it held until mid-2017. It retains a presence in the desert interior (BBC, 2019).

Humanitarian consequences:

Seven years of instability and insecurity have taken their toll on the wellbeing of many children, women and men in Libya. Each passing year people struggle to withstand the impacts of the crisis that has destabilized the country, put them in harm’s way, driven up food prices, and ravaged the economy. To date, the crisis in Libya is characterised by violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, restricted access to safety and freedom of movement, forced displacement, severity and pervasiveness of gender-based violence. All parties to the conflict have committed breaches of international law including torture, unlawful killings, indiscriminate attacks, abductions, kidnapping, disappearances and the forceful displacement of people. The number of people with mental health and psychosocial problems increased substantially as a result of the conflict, including severe psychological distress for the conflict affected population, as well as the contamination from explosive hazards affecting human security and access (Protection Working Group, 2018). Approximately half of the people in need of humanitarian assistance are Libyans. Conflict affected refugees and migrants in or transiting through the country make up the other half. The majority of people in need are found in highly populated urban areas in the Western and Eastern regions of Libya. However, people with the most critical and severe needs are located in the southern mantikas2 of Murzuq, Sebha and Alkufra, and the coastal mantika of Sirt (HNO, 2019). An estimated 823,000 people, including around 248,000 children, are in-need of humanitarian assistance in Libya as a result of persisting political instability, conflict and insecurity, the breakdown of the rule of law, a deteriorating public sector and a dysfunctional economy. People in-need of assistance include internally displaced persons, returnees, non-displaced conflict affected people and host communities, and refugees1 and migrants (HRP, 2019).


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 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.

PUI’s strategy/position in the country
The main programmatic objectives of PUI can be synthetized as follows:

  • Provide life-saving assistance by ensuring a safe and dignified access to health services as well as an access to clean water, basic sanitation facilities and hygiene items for the affected families in Detention Centers. 
  • Improve the quality of the health services provided to the people through the national health facilities.
  • Deliver comprehensive primary health care services through different levels of interventions, including outreach activities, capacity building, improvement of existing services, community based approach, and preventive actions via hygiene and health promotion education.
History of the mission and current programs
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 area. 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 carried out 10 small rehabilitation projects in Benghazi area in 2018. In 2019 the implemented work remained under the same mentioned strategy of intervention. To date, the mission is implementing three projects funding by EU, ECHO and UNHCR. 

  • Title: Provision of life-saving health services for vulnerable communities in Eastern Libya. (Funded by ECHO).
  • Title: Life-saving assistance to People of Concern in Detention Centers located in East of Libya (Pillar 1) and Assistance to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and IDPs returnees in Libya (Pillar 4). (Funded by UNHCR).
  • Title: Evidence based NCD Care: A Model for PHC in Libya (NCDPHC-Libya). (Funded by EU- CDC-UK)
