1. Nature of the consultancy: Under the direct supervision of the Migration Health Project Officer, Migration Health Division (MHD) and under the overall supervision of Migration health Coordinator, the consultant will be responsible for analyzing and preparing the report of health needs and targeted for rehabilitation in the South of Libya.
Context: The global health security threat, the Covid-19 pandemic, has threatened the already volatile security situation in the south region of Libya. The vast and poorly controlled desert borders with neighboring countries, mainly with Niger, Chad, Sudan and Algeria, but also at the borders with Tunisia and Egypt. Currently, the country has witnessed a surge of mixed migration flow in the southern borders of Libya, flourishing trafficking in persons, weapons and illicit drugs as well as cross-border movements of armed groups, and potentially offer excellent proliferation hubs for terrorist and violent extremist groups. As a result, the current situation not only poses a threat to Libya but to the entire Sahel region, with negative consequences for the security conditions and the wellbeing of the civil population across the region.
With this backdrop, IOM is implementing Activity 6 of the framework of the “Support to Integrated Border and Migration Management in Libya” (SIBMMIL), funded by the European Union and implemented by the Italian Ministry of Interior. This multi-year initiative aims at strengthening the capacity of relevant Libyan authorities to manage southern national borders and the corresponding mixed migration flows efficiently and in a manner compliant with international law, especially human rights law. IOM will specifically promote and facilitate awareness and application of the concepts of humanitarian border management (HBM), and health, border and mobility management (HBMM). Interventions will include rehabilitation/construction of border infrastructure and provision of equipment to border management and health structures; a comprehensive training plan targeting border and health officials; tailored technical support to relevant authorities to enable them to perform search and rescue operations in the desert and activities related to the enhancement of cross-border cooperation mechanisms between Libya and its neighboring countries at Southern borders. The overall objective of the activity 6, is given below:
Objective: Strengthen the capacity of relevant Libyan authorities to manage national borders and mixed migration efficiently and in a manner compliant with international law, especially human rights law, and in line with the White Paper process.
The IOM’s HBMM is a conceptual and operational framework with ultimate goal of improving prevention, detection and response to the spread of diseases along the mobility continuum (at points of origin, transit, destination and return) and its Spaces of Vulnerability, where migrants and mobile populations (MMPs) interact with stationary, local communities. With particular focus on border areas, HBMM unifies border management with health security and ultimately supports the implementation of the International Health Regulations 2005. Implementing health activities and strengthening the capacity of health authorities is intrinsic to the HBMM framework. HBMM also endeavors to build human mobility competent health systems at both the community and primary health care levels, which
 Activity 6: Strengthen the Humanitarian Border Management and Health, Border and Mobility Management capacities of south Libya authorities, implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM)
is essential for global health security. Such systems are responsive to the dynamics of human mobility and are inclusive, ensuring Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for all, including migrants and mobile populations, regardless of their status.
