The south western city of Sebha has had to deal with a multiplicity of crises over the past years. Since May 2020, the eruption of the Covid-19 pandemic has tested and ultimately overwhelmed the healthcare system. This paper sheds light on dysfunctions in the health sector in Sebha during the Covid-19 crisis. It explains the weakness of the existing healthcare infrastructure and also underlines the importance of other factors such as political division, the mismanagement of resources and tribal dynamics on the health crisis.
