Libya: Ramping up its COVID-19 response
Since middle of March 2020, the ICRC, while maintaining its conflict related humanitarian activities, also started to ramp up its response to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Libya.
Working with various authorities and with our Movement partners, the Libyan Red Crescent Society (LRCS) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the ICRC geared up its COVID-19 response focussing on needs of vulnerable communities such as internally displaced people, detainees as well as supporting the health care facilities in their COVID-19 related response preparedness.
Below are the highlights of these activities carried out between 15 March to 30 April 2020.
