COMMUNITY HEALTH OFFICER – Al kufrah , South East Libya - Premiere Urgence Internationale


The organisation

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 providing assistance to around 7 million people in 22 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

 

PUI Libya mission started implementing operations in East of Libya (Benghazi area) in 2017 and developed an emergency health 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 and their host communities, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. PUI Health intervention consists of general practitioners consultations, adequate treatment provision, sexual and reproductive health services, integrated management of Childhood Illness, psychosocial support interventions. Furthermore, PUI is reinforcing sensitization, communication and prevention on health and hygiene related topics within the communities. 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.

 

Since 2018, PUI intends to extend its area of intervention to eastern and southern Mantikas in East of Libya to better reach out the most vulnerable. For that purpose, PUI conducted an exploratory mission in the Al Kufrah region (south-east Libya) in order to identify the specific needs of this isolated area and develop an adapted humanitarian response. Thus, PUI will soon start implementing comprehensive health related activities to ensure a continuous access to essential care. PUI’s Al Kufrah’s action will combine three levels of intervention: (1) Direct service delivery of primary health care by one MHT through an outreach approach targeting the vulnerable population, (2) At community level, PUI will deploy a network of community health workers (CHW) that will facilitate and optimize the work of the MHT through sensitisation, screening and referral activities; and (3) At health facility level via technical support. The operation will start in Autumn 2019 after a three month inception phase including capacity building of the team and installation of a PUI office, composed of a full management and health team.
