Guard - Brak Al-Shati
BACKGROUND Background/IRC Summary: The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity, and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has operated in Libya since 2016, where it works with Libyan national and local health authorities to provide inclusive free-of-charge health services to vulnerable populations. In Ein Zara, IRC provides migrants and refugees with integrated health and protection services. Since the 2011 turmoil, Libya has suffered economic collapse, lawlessness, and the proliferation of violent militias. Infrastructure was destroyed, and access to basic services, such as health care, has dramatically decreased. In April 2019, another large-scale offense against the Government of National Accord in Tripoli affected densely populated areas in and around the city for over a year. The situation is further compounded by foreign support to militias and mercenaries and disregard for the UN-agreed arms embargo to the country. More recently, many have felt a sense of quiet optimism as the political situation appears to have shifted and stabilized with the handover of power in February 2021 to the new temporary Government of National Unity. Despite this positive turn of events, the latest crisis gripping Libya is the COVID-19 pandemic, for which case numbers have been steadily increasing since March 2021, even though the COVID-19 vaccine has been rolled out.
The IRC Libya program is in the process of expanding the scope and scale of health programming in Tripoli, developing an outcome-focused strategy that aims to restore and strengthen the primary health care system, focusing on ensuring survival, equitably, and at scale to reach the largest number of clients.
