    Despite the full-scale war, Ukrainian doctors continue to improve their professional level and knowledge. This is important in order to provide patients with high quality and up-to-date care. Thus, Ukrainian doctors learn from the experience of leading international clinics and share their own.

    In February, 132 healthcare workers, including 54 doctors from 26 medical institutions from different regions of Ukraine, took part in scientific events (conferences, congresses, conventions, forums), educational events (internships, training, workshops, seminars) and experience exchange.

    Ukrainian doctors have been trained in such countries as: Germany, Austria, Poland, France, Italy, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Israel. It should be noted that such training exchanges are part of the international medical partnership.

    “Thanks to the international medical partnership programme, Ukrainian doctors today have the opportunity to improve their professionalism, knowledge and skills to improve the quality of medical care in Ukraine. It is also important that our doctors not only learn but also teach. The experience of the pandemic and full-scale war has posed many challenges to our healthcare system. We have survived and continue to work. We have a lot to share with our foreign colleagues. All of this contributes to the resilience of the medical system at the global level. Direct cooperation between medical institutions enables regular exchange of experience and prompt implementation of the world’s best practices. This is what contributes to building modern high-quality medicine in Ukraine,” said Viktor Liashko, Minister of Health of Ukraine.

    It should be noted that the international medical partnership project is being implemented under the auspices of the Third Summit of First Ladies and Gentlemen. The Summit launched the International Medical Partnership Programme.

    Initially, 25 Ukrainian hospitals were assigned “twin hospitals” in different countries to share experience and best international practices. To date, 34 memoranda of cooperation have been signed.
