In partnership with UNHCR and collaboration with other NGO actors, IMC provides medical assistance, protection monitoring, outreach services, and registration under the migrant/refugee response in multiple settings – detention centers, community development centers, disembarkation points (rescue at sea), and registration center. IMC is an integral part of referral pathways with its healthcare service for migrants and refugees. In addition, IMC provides medical assistance to internally displaced population across Libya, and will launch a Women and Girls Safe Space where a multi-service response to GBV cases will be provided for IDP community.
