The Government has allocated more than UAH 6.6 billion for reconstruction projects from the fund for liquidation of the consequences of the armed aggression of the russian federation. In particular, these include schools, kindergartens, medical facilities, residential buildings, construction and reconstruction of water and sewage systems, heating networks, drilling of artesian wells, etc.
Part of the funds will be used to restore and repair 13 medical facilities of various specialisations in the areas most affected by the war and in the regions that were flooded due to the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant dam blast.
The healthcare infrastructure facilities include primary healthcare centres, regional and clinical hospitals - 7 in Kharkiv, 2 in Zhytomyr, 3 in Mykolaiv and 1 in Odesa. More details are on the Ministry of Health website.
For more than a year now, the russian army has been targeting and destroying Ukrainian infrastructure, including medical facilities. In particular, every day the enemy destroys hospitals, outpatient clinics, maternity wards, etc. However, despite the constant bombardment, Ukraine continues to restore and rebuild some medical facilities. This is to ensure that everyone in need has access to quality and necessary medical care despite the challenges caused by the war.
Over the 15 months of the war, russia has damaged 1,376 medical facilities and destroyed another 184.
