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 in average 200 projects by year in the following sectors of  intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic  recovery. PUI is assisting around 7 million people in 22 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France. 

Crisis context 

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 2018, 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.  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 neighbourhoods 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  neighbouring cities, and, more recently to Tunisia. 

Throughout 2018, in Benghazi and its surroundings, the situation remains calm even though heavy fighting took place in other towns of  the country (Darnah, Ajdabiya, Tripoli, and Sabha). After two year of siege, the LNA launched an attack on Darnah in May 2018. Then,  Haftar announced the capture of the city in June; however, clashes were still ongoing in a small part of the town in November 2018. Near  to Ajdabiya, fights erupted in June 2018, when the forces conducted by Ibrahim Jadhran attacked the oil facilities in the oil crescent,  under the LNA forces. These fights conducted to some population movements in eastern Libya. However, the overall number of IDPs did  not change significantly throughout the year – increasing and decreasing at times – while the total number of returnees has progressively  increased. Late in 2018, Benghazi is still the town hosting the highest number of IDPs (25,665 individuals), as well as knowing the  highest number of returnees (188,625 individuals) in Libya. Thus, Benghazi appears to be, with Tripoli, one of the two main cities to host  the more IDPs. The area appears to be particularly vulnerable locations due to the high damage inflicted by three years of heavy clashes. Among the IDPs population, the Tawergha community living in the camps in Benghazi and its surroundings, is entering its 8th y ear of  displacement with few real chances to return their areas of origin soon. Darnah is the fifth town of returns with 23,863 individuals. 

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.  

Still in the same area, since April 2019 the situation remained relatively stable, allowing the PUI program’s to progress with minimum  interference. However, this fragile equilibrium could be rapidly overturn depending on the evolution of conflict. Premiere Ur gence  Internationale (PUI) is monitoring closely the events and, is evaluating potential scenarios in order to plan for contingency in case the  security situation deteriorates. 

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 Kufrah’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.  

Besides, in the Libyan context, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers leaving outside and within the detention centres (DCs) represents  another significant vulnerable group in Libya. Estimated to be around 700,000 to 1 million, they are among the most vulnerable  population in the country and are currently facing acute needs. This includes an estimated number of migrants in 55 DCs of 5,000 to  7,000 people at the end of 2018. These persons, including both asylum seekers and refugees, have been consistently identified as being  the most vulnerable individuals throughout Libya for several reasons. In particular, they are identified as having reduced access to, and  availability of life-saving assistance. Additionally, various report show that refugees and asylum seekers in Libya face significant  protection concerns, with their status making them particularly vulnerable to abuse, marginalisation, and exploitation. Those who move  through the country are exposed to widespread abuses and human’s rights violation along the route. Due to their irregular status, lack of  domestic support networks, impunity for crimes committed against foreign nationals, racism, xenophobia and policies linked to the control  of mixed migrations flows in Europe, they are highly vulnerable and in need of humanitarian assistance.

PUI’s strategy/ current programs 
Since May 2016 and the beginning of the exploratory mission, PUI still identifies the support to the health system and the improvement of  access to health care as some of the major needs for the eastern Libyan population along with its ongoing field intervention. This analysis  has been confirmed by the 2019 HNO, which defines the access to critical services (including public healthcare services and Wash  facilities) as the second key humanitarian priority need, with the health sector being the one with the highest number of people in need  (554,000 individuals).  

PUI Libya mission has started implementing operations in East of Libya (Benghazi area) in 2017 and developed an emergency hea lth  response that provides primary health care services to the most vulnerable population. PUI’s intervention focuses on health care through  the deployment of Mobile Health Teams (MHT) delivering direct services to internal displaced populations, the host communities,  migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. To date, PUI has three 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 centres.  

Since 2018, PUI has extended its area of intervention to in the north eastern Mantikas namely Al Wahat (Ajdabiya Baladiya), Al Marj, Al  Jabal Alakhadar, Darnah and Al Butnan (Tubruq Baladiya) to better reach out the most vulnerable. In 2019, PUI Benghazi office is  starting a new project called Evidence Based NCD care, a model for PHC in Libya with the objective to enhance access to Non – Communicable Disease health services in the PHC level in the target area. The project includes 2 health facilities and 2,000 patients will  benefit from the services.  

In the view to extend its operational coverage in 2018, 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 December 2019, PUI  implemented comprehensive health related activities to ensure a continuous access to essential care to the most affected population.  

In line with its Country strategy and since 2020, PUI Libya mission integrated protection outcomes within its intervention to better identify and respond to related risk and incidents and inform the humanitarian response. . Targeted protection actions (stand alone and  integrated protection) were included within the programmatic response for the two areas of interventions ; in immigration detention  centres located in Eastern Libya and in urban areas in Southeast Libya.
