Support for the Ukrainian people and health workforce.

Recently, the whole world is living with the shocking event of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine. Millions of Ukrainian people are the innocent victims of this war. The humanitarian situation in many Ukrainian cities is extremely difficult and consequences on civilians will be devastating.

At this extremely difficult time, Ukrainian healthcare system is in need of different kind of urgent support. As the war escalates, health professionals are responding to a deepening crisis. Medical professionals are providing health services 24/7. Nevertheless, it should be stressed that this is a huge challenge for medical staff and for healthcare system: the Covid-19 pandemic has put an enormous burden on medical staff, and meanwhile they are facing a new traumatic challenge.

International organisations work on various fronts to provide medical support and assistance to Ukraine and neighboring countries, where more than one million refugees have fled.
