The Libyan uprising eight years ago left the country in a state of turmoil. 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. Security, rule of law and social and economic well-being of the Libyan population have all been severely affected. 

The healthcare system in Libya is one of the hardest hit, having deteriorated to the point of collapse. Ongoing challenges include increased rates of chronic illness, disability and access to essential services such as medicine and rehabilitation. Hospitals struggle to absorb the number of patients and to cope with a lack of resources, including a shortage of staff and essential medicines and supplies. According to the World Health Organization, around 1.3 million people have no access to life-saving health care services. In addition, the number of victims as a result of Conventional Weapons (CW) and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) continues to grow. In contaminated areas, local populations, internally displaced persons and returning populations are all at risk of death and injury. 

The identification of the most vulnerable individuals, including people with disabilities or injuries, and the rapid response to essential needs is a priority for the humanitarian community working throughout Libya. The political conflict and humanitarian crisis is likely to continue well into 2019; whilst at the same time continue to hamper the delivery of primarily medical and socio-economic services, complicating access and increasing the vulnerability of the general population. 


Since 2014, HI’s Libya mission was managed remotely from neighboring Tunisia. In mid-2018 HI began a phased redeployment of international staff, with 5 out of 9 expatriates now formally based in Misrata. Regular and programmed visits are required by all other international staff to Libya to support programme activities and ensure a close follow up and training of national staff. Ultimately, all international staff should be relocated to Libya during the course of 2019. 

As a result of the conflict and instability, the collapse of the health services has considerably reduced assistance towards the most vulnerable, in particular persons with disabilities. HI is currently implementing a humanitarian programme from operational bases in Tripoli, Misrata and Benghazi 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 (hospitals, rehabilitation centres and local NGOs); 
  • Training on inclusion principles to other humanitarian actors and health workers; 
  • Provision of Risk Education to conflict affected communities on the risks and effects caused by mines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) to locate and destroy ERW in targeted communities; 
  • Support to the Libyan Mine Action Centre (LibMAC) and other ministries in developing a victim assistance strategy and action plan for 2019. 

In addition, beginning in early 2019 HI is implementing a three year project entitled ‘Action for Mental Health Assistance in Libya’ (AMAL) as part of wider initiatives to improve the access and quality of health care services in Libya. Implemented in partnership with a Tunisian NGO, the specific objectives of the project are as follows: 

  • Psychosocial distress, mental health and substance abuse in Libya is reduced; 
  • Expanded access, availability and acceptability to quality psychosocial support and mental health care; 
  • Training and upskilling of Libyan mental health staff; 
  • Greater awareness about the risks and manifestations of mental illness and substance abuse amongst at-risk groups in Libya. 

The overall objective of the project is therefore to allow the most vulnerable people in Libya (adults, adolescents and children) from host communities, those internally displaced, returnees and migrants, suffering from mental health disorders/psychosocial disabilities to regain or to preserve good mental health by accessing quality interventions at community level, primary health care level, and secondary and tertiary level. 

The post holder will be expected to spend at least 50% of their time in Libya including traveling between operational bases in Tripoli, Misrata and Benghazi, along with other staff.
