Details. “In each liberated territorial community of the oblast, medical facilities are damaged significantly, and some of them are almost completely destroyed,” the statement reads.

In particular, in the Balakliya territorial community, with almost three times less residents than before the war – about 15,000 people – there are only five inpatient doctors left.

The hospital was mined and destroyed, the equipment was destroyed and looted, so the specialists have to work in adapted premises. Three doctors work in primary care, there were 25 of them before the occupation.

“The Shevchenkove community needs outpatient doctors, but the need for inpatient specialists is completely closed. The difficult situation with access to medical care is also in Izium. In fact, the hospital has critical damage and cannot fully function at the moment,” the Ministry of Reintegration reports.

According to the results of the medical reconnaissance and the core meeting, the Ministry of Health decided how the medical infrastructure of the liberated region will be restored and strengthened. In particular, additional disaster medicine assistance teams are being involved.

It is noted that necessary medicines have already been delivered to the region.
