On 22 October 2019, the WHO and UNICEF country offices in Libya, in collaboration with the Libyan Ministry of Health, launched a national workshop to adapt WHO/UNICEF guidelines on the integrated management of neonatal and childhood illness (IMNCI) to the context in Libya.

IMNCI is an integrated approach to neonatal and child health that focuses on the well-being of the whole child. It aims to reduce death, illness and disability and promote improved growth and development among children under five years of age. Over a four-day period from 22 to 25 October 2019, child health specialists from the Ministry, primary health care facilities, universities and hospitals across the country developed specific guidelines for Libya, based on global WHO/UNICEF guidelines.
