The Russian invasion has triggered a major health crisis in Ukraine. The destruction of infrastructure, the displacement of millions of people, and the large numbers of injured in front line fighting and shelling across the country, have overwhelmed the Ukrainian healthcare system, depriving the population of adequate medical care.

They explained the problems they are dealing with and how their activities are carried out across the country.
