First Deputy Minister of Health Serhiy Dubrov said this on the air of the national telethon "United News", Ukrinform reports.
"1433 medical facilities were damaged, and if we talk about completely destroyed hospitals, then today 177 medical facilities have been completely destroyed since the beginning of the invasion. We are rebuilding, and first of all, we are rebuilding those medical facilities that have been slightly damaged, replacing window units, replacing roofing and rebuilding those medical facilities that have been damaged in places where citizens need medical care," said Dubrov.
The deputy minister emphasized that it takes a long time to rebuild large medical facilities that Russia destroyed.
Therefore, in those places where medical institutions were destroyed, in small settlements, emergency medical services and emergency medicine started to work immediately after de-occupation, providing not only emergency care but also primary health care.
"Then the issue is resolved through temporary solutions, such as the installation of modular health centers or modular hospitals. We are considering the construction of modular hospitals, some of them have already been built for the future. With the help of the French government, we are also planning to expand the network of mobile hospitals," Dubrov added.
As reported, in April of this year, the Ministers of Health of Ukraine and France signed a declaration on cooperation in the field of health and prevention between the ministries. In particular, it was agreed to implement a number of projects to develop Ukraine's healthcare system, technical expertise, and exchange of experience. It was also agreed to implement a project to rebuild hospitals on a modular basis. Preliminarily, we are talking about ten modular hospitals with a total cost of 30 million euros, which are planned to be built at the expense of a government loan from the French government.
