Hospitals, clinics, and most health services in Libya fell behind during 42 years of dictatorship under Colonel Ghaddafi. The health system in Libya has deteriorated further in the 8 years of civil war that followed the fall of his regime. Nearly 7 million citizens of a wealthy country fail to receive the most basic health care services.


        Today there is a dire need for assistance in every area of health care in Libya.

Objectives & Intentions


The National Council on U.S.-Libya Relations invites all physicians, midlevel providers, nurses, medical technicians, physiotherapists, occupational, respiratory, and behavioral therapists, psychologists, pharmacists, biomedical engineers/technologists, hospital managers and administrators, inventory managers, health educators, and other health care professionals to join us in helping rebuild Libyan health services. 


Our intention is to build a knowledge transfer bridge in the area of health care between the US and Libya. If you are interested in participating in our mission and/or have prior experience in aiding post-conflict countries through health care field work, philanthropic missions, or volunteerism, please email us at
