TERMS OF REFERENCE
The humanitarian situation in Libya has deteriorated since the 2014 civil war. According to the United Nations Humanitarian Response Plan for 2017, 1.3 million people require urgent health assistance, including an estimated 700,000 IDPs and 1 million refugees and migrants. In response, the IRC launched an emergency program in September 2016 in Libya that provides medical care, medicines, and medical supplies in hospitals and primary health care centers (PHCCs). At present, the IRC is conducting these activities in Misrata.
On June 15, IRC Libya’s current grants are ending and expected grants from ECHO and LDS will start. With these new grants, IRC Libya will be making significant changes to its health program. We will hire and deploy Mobile Health Teams (of Libyan staff) to Misrata and Sirte (a new operational area for us), renovate damaged PHCCs in Sirte, distribute drugs to a hospital in Misrata, and provide capacity building on Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) in the Misrata hospital. The MHTs will also include protection case managers, targeting women and children. The case management will be IRC Libya’s first foray into protection programming.
Around the same time, IRC Libya is at an advanced stage in negotiations with a consortium of INGOs and with UNHCR on two partnerships to support to refugees and migrants in detention centers. IRC Libya support would include primary health care, NFI distributions, and possibly protection monitoring or some other type of protection work. There are 34 official migrant detention centers in Libya, and under these two partnerships the IRC would work in a to-be-determined number of them in western Libya (between Tripoli and Sirte). This would be IRC Libya’s first foray into migrant/refugee assistance programming in Libya.
