As of almost mid-November 2023, 834 medical facilities have been fully or partially restored in Ukraine. Of these, 421 facilities have been fully restored and another 413 have been partially restored. Most of the restored medical facilities are located in Mykolaiv, Dnipro, Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Kherson oblasts.

For more than a year and a half of the war, the russian army has continued to deliberately and brutally shell Ukrainian civilian infrastructure, including medical facilities. In particular, the enemy destroys outpatient clinics, hospitals, maternity wards, polyclinics, etc.

However, despite systematic enemy attacks and bombings, one of the state’s priorities is to rebuild the medical infrastructure. That is why the country is continuing to restore it. We want every patient in every corner of Ukraine to have unimpeded access to the necessary medical services.

That is why the Ministry of Health and its partners continue to work to rebuild Ukrainian medical institutions and create conditions for our doctors to work fully and provide the necessary medical care to patients despite the war.

It should be noted that since the beginning of the full-scale war, the enemy has damaged 1468 medical facilities and destroyed another 193 facilities completely (not subject to repair). The medical infrastructure of Kharkiv, Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Kyiv and Chernihiv oblast suffered the greatest losses.

It should be recalled that the Ministry of Health recently announced the restoration of the Mykolaiv Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital, which was damaged by russians at the beginning of the full-scale war.
