"Today, it is important to restore every medical facility... Therefore, we are now consolidating our efforts with our partners to first of all restore hospitals that have sustained minor damage and can be rebuilt in the shortest possible term. In parallel lines, we are implementing a few more projects in Kyiv and Sumy regions, where medical facilities are being built practically from scratch," Deputy Minister of Health Bohdan Borukhovskyi told a meeting with representatives of Project HOPE.

Currently, the Ministry of Health, together with Project HOPE, is mulling cooperation in several infrastructure projects. According to the ministry, this organization already boasts a number of successfully implemented projects for the renovation of Ukrainian hospitals.
