Overview of the state of the Ukrainian healthcare system since the start of the war

Igor Guschuk,

Nataliia Oleksiuk


This publication is an analogue of the report on the review of the state of the health care system of Ukraine since the beginning of the war. This report was presented as a part of an international event—a special meeting on the topic “War in Ukraine and public health,” organized on May 22, 2022 by ASPHER (Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region). The speech not only indicated the terrible consequences and the humanitarian crisis due to military aggression by Russia, but also partially considered multiple issues: 1) state of sanitary and epidemic wellbeing of Ukrainian citizens and threats to the health of the population during the war; 2) needs which can be met by organizations such as ASPHER to strengthen human resources for Ukraine in the field of public health; 3) steps which must be taken in the shortest possible time to strengthen the restoration of the Ukrainian healthcare system and ensure the proper state of sanitary and epidemic well-being of the population.
