The European Commission has finalised a new assistance package for Libya worth a total of €6.6 million. This support is financed under the European Neighbourhood Instrument in the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy.

Through this support, the EU confirms its continuous support to the Libyan population in helping them to increase access to health services and in supporting youth in this extremely volatile situation. It consists of two programmes:

1- Support to the health sector (€3.6 million): The project goal is to improve the health care provision efficiency in Libya by focusing on two aspects. First, it aims at improving the supply chain through increased quality of planning, management and monitoring of the medicines and supplies in Libya. Second, it targets the improvement of the management and quality of the health information system. This action builds on previous interventions in the health sector and is complementary to ongoing actions.

2- Support to Libyan youth (€3 million): This project will contribute to the resilience and social inclusion of adolescents and young people in Libya. In particular, it aims at enhancing adolescents’ and young people’s active role in society. This will be achieved through access to non-formal education, livelihoods programmes, recreational and cultural services and peace building dialogue in selected areas across Libya.
