UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, hope
Since 2011, UNICEF worked closely with the partners to support basic service provision; to build a protective environment for children; and to contribute to evidence generation and evidence-based policy dialogue. Gender, youth, and children on the move were critical cross-cutting priorities throughout the year. UNICEF’s nine Annual Work Plans, signed with relevant line ministries for 2019-20, were revised to incorporate COVID-19 prevention, mitigation and response. Where basic services were not available for the most vulnerable, UNICEF provided humanitarian assistance in line with the Humanitarian Response Plan 2020 with international and national NGO.
Access to and quality of healthcare significantly deteriorated in 2020, with a grave risk of increased communicable and non-communicable disease. An estimated 1.2 million people are in need of primary and secondary health services, including 425,705 children. More than half of the health care facilities functioning in 2019 have closed due to security issues and funding deficits. Those that remain open are constrained by significant shortages of staff, medicines and supplies; notably, an estimated 70 percent of primary health care facilities do not have the 20 most essential medications. During two months in 2020, there was a stockout of essential vaccines, including those that prevent childhood diseases such as measles and polio. By the end of the year, there were indications that another vaccine stock-out was imminent.
The COVID-19 morbidity and mortality rate have steadily increased in 2021. The deterioration in the healthcare system has hampered efforts to control COVID-19. Existing treatment and testing facilities are predominately located in Tripoli and Benghazi; large areas of Libya are without access to services. Significant gaps in the availability of Personal Protective Equipment as well as inadequate measures to prevent and control transmission have resulted high healthcare worker transmission rates. Risk Communication and Community Engagement are vital to stopping further transmission, but local capacity is limited.
UNICEF programmes are generously funded by a multiple donor include the EU and BMZ. In order to ensure timely and quality reporting to the donors and other stakeholders, UNICEF will strengthen its internal CSD capacity of reporting by hiring a national reports officer at NOA level.
