The public health risk assessment for the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya is to provide health professionals in United Nations agencies, nongovernmental organizations, donor agencies and local authorities currently working with populations affected by this emergency, with up-to-date technical guidance on the major public health threats faced by the displaced population. Public health threats represent a significant challenge to those providing health-care services in this evolving situation. It is hoped that this risk assessment will facilitate the coordination of activities between all agencies working among the populations currently affected by the crisis.
