WHO to organize for supporting health care in Ukraine

The World Health Organization (WHO) is going to organize activities for supporting the health care in Ukraine from Lviv in the Western part of the nation while the attacks against the health care system continue.

The WHO has been a fully-functional office in Lviv as well as is setting up an operational base in Dnipro, in East-Central Ukraine, to mobilize resources more quickly as well as reach some of the most vulnerable individuals in conflict areas with urgent supplies.

Moreover, in Lviv, there were situation issues on World Health Day. The WHO Regional Director for Europe named, Dr Hans Kluge, shared a reminder that the WHO was founded 74 years ago in the after-effects of the Second World War “to uphold the principle that well-being is a human right, and all people should enjoy the highest standard of health.”

He mentioned, “As a doctor myself, I am here in Ukraine to stand in solidarity with the health care workers in the country.”

“I appreciated them for their dedication and professionalism – as they continue to deliver care in the face of unimaginable human suffering and scenes of total devastation – that no nurse, doctor, midwife, ambulance driver, pharmacist, therapist or social worker should ever have to experience.”

The achievement was crossed on Thursday at the time of war in Ukraine, with over 100 attacks on health care verified by WHO from the starting of Russia’s full-scale military operation on February 24.

Along with this, the attacks have so far declared that there were 73 lives that have taken during the war, and 51 have been injured. Of all the total 103 attacks, 89 have impacted health facilities, as well as 13 have affected transport, including ambulances.

Furthermore, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, mentioned that “WHO strongly and unequivocally condemns these attacks. This kind of destruction means that already battered communities will further be deprived of vital health services.”
