Ukrainian hospitals are struggling
Before the Invasion, in 2021, there were about 2 500 hospitals in Ukraine. The hospitals are concentrated in large Ukrainian cities. The level of health care has been lower than the European average even before the Invasion. Therefore the Ukrainian parliament had been evaluating modernising the state-guaranteed Ukrainian National Health Service (NSZU), but the Russian Invasion interrupted this process. Since Russia’s Invasion, nearly one of 10 hospitals in Ukraine has been damaged by attacks.
The Invasion aims to destroy as much vital infrastructure as possible, such as energy plants and hospitals. Electricity and water shortages deprive hospitals of their ability to function.
However, during the devastating crisis, Ukrainian authorities and hospitals have persistently developed crisis-time functions and resilience and maintained operations centrally in the largest cities. With the help of backup generators, vital functions have been tried to keep up.
