UNOPS has been active in Lebanon since 2015, delivering projects in support of the Government of Lebanon and partners.

UNOPS is committed to achieving a fully diverse workforce.

Background Information - Project-specific

The current crisis in Lebanon, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic and the Beirut Port Explosion in August 2020, have impacted the health sector both in terms of the health system and patients themselves. The shortage of funding, health workers, medical supplies and equipment, as well as the aging infrastructure and equipment have created a gap between the increased demand for health service and the capacity of the existing national health system to absorb the current demand.

Furthermore, the critical shortage of electricity in the country is further exacerbating the health sector’s already limited capacity to provide essential health services. While Lebanon is on its way toward the target to cover 30% of its energy consumption from renewable energy sources by 2030, the primary source of energy generation in Lebanon is still imported oil products, making up 96% of total energy generation as of 2019. Therefore, an integrated approach to enhance the operational capacity of the health sector, including sustainable supply of electricity is needed in Lebanon.

To contribute to the above, UNOPS, in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) in Lebanon, proposed health sector support through provision of equipment and installation of renewable energy solutions.
