Ukraine health system buckling under weight of humanitarian crisis

WHO and health partners urgently need at least US$23 million to provide improved health care to more than 5 million affected people in eastern Ukraine, of whom 1.4 million are considered to be highly vulnerable and in need of humanitarian health assistance.

WHO works with humanitarian organizations as part of the Global Health Cluster response to provide primary health care services, medicines, ambulances and other essential medical items to ensure that Ukraine’s most vulnerable communities receive support.
