International organizations are engaged in the restoration of health facilities in Ukraine that were destroyed or damaged by Russian aggressors.
This was reported by the Ministry of Health, according to Ukrinform.
“Since the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine, the enemy has damaged 826 medical facilities. Another 127 have been completely destroyed by the Russians. At the same time, it was possible to restore 62 objects that were hit by occupants,” the statement read.
As noted, one of the partners helping to rebuild medical facilities is the international non-governmental health organization Project HOPE.
“Today, it is important to restore every medical facility… That is why we are now consolidating our efforts with our partners to first restore hospitals that have suffered minor damage and can be rebuilt in the shortest possible time. In parallel, we are implementing a few more projects in Kyiv and Sumy regions, where medical facilities are being built almost from scratch,” Deputy Health Minister Bohdan Borukhovskyi said during a meeting with representatives of the HOPE project.
Currently, the Ministry of Health, together with the HOPE project, is considering cooperation in several infrastructure projects. According to the ministry, this organization already has a number of successfully implemented projects for the renovation of Ukrainian hospitals. In particular, thanks to his efforts, two buildings of the central hospital in the city of Irpin, damaged by the Russians, were restored.
In addition, the organization is working on the restoration of a number of medical facilities and municipal pharmacies in the Chernihiv and Kyiv regions. In the near future, renovation work on hospitals in the Kharkiv region should begin.
As reported, the Ministry of Health and the HOPE project signed a memorandum that opens new opportunities for cooperation to restore the Ukrainian medical system and ensure the supply of necessary medicines.
