UNICEF organized a workshop in Tunis under the title Strengthening the Management of Immunizations in Libya, in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the National Center for Combating Communicable Diseases, in which it agreed to vaccinate 1.8 million Libyan children against polio and measles in October.

During the workshop, UNICEF disclosed the results of a recent study that had examined the situation of water and sanitation in schools, which included 140 schools in Libya. It was found that the situation is almost dangerous with 67% of schools not having enough water to cater for the pupils, and 48% not having proper health facilities.
