Libya Humanitarian Emergency

A pregnant Libyan refugee with her son.

Protracted armed conflict and political instability has impacted millions of people across Libya country and displaced thousands. The conflict has had a devastating impact on healthcare, with regular attacks against health facilities, medical personnel and ambulances. In many areas in the south of Libya, access to and quality of basic services, including life-saving healthcare, is severely constrained. Women and girls in particular face unmet health needs and there has been an alarming increase in maternal mortality. Migrants and refugees continue to face a multitude of protection risks, including arbitrary detention and sexual and gender-based violence. UNFPA has a strong presence in the gender-based violence sub-cluster and the sexual and reproductive health working group in Libya and is working jointly with partners to operationalize its humanitarian, development and peacebuilding priorities.
