    Ministry of Health of Ukraine, posted 15 April 2024 09:37

    Healthcare facilities will receive 52 generators with a capacity of 18 to 240 kW for full and uninterrupted operation in case of blackouts. In the event of an emergency power outage, the generators will start automatically and supply voltage to the grid. Thus, medical facilities will be able to continue providing medical services to patients under any conditions.

    The equipment was purchased as part of the joint Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the World Bank Ukraine Emergency COVID-19 Response and Vaccination Project.

    The generators will be distributed to nine regions: Zhytomyr, Kirovohrad, Kyiv, Lviv, Ternopil, Rivne, Cherkasy, Chernihiv and Khmelnytskyi regions. The list of healthcare facilities includes hospitals, primary healthcare centres, etc.

    As of now, Ukraine’s healthcare facilities have almost 11,200 generators.

    However, russia’s attacks on the energy infrastructure have intensified, creating additional challenges and burdens for the medical system. Therefore, the provision of uninterruptible power supply equipment to healthcare facilities continues throughout Ukraine. Supplies are made in accordance with the current needs of each region.
