In late February 2022, attacks by Russian forces on multiple cities in Ukraine have since led nearly 6 million people to become refugees.

As war spreads throughout Ukraine, people are fleeing the country. They are exhausted, scared and many are suffering from hunger, dehydration or hypothermia. Our teams in Ukraine have had to suspend our usual medical activities.

We are now scaling up our emergency response in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries. In addition to Ukraine, we have teams responding in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Russia and Belarus.

MSF activities in Ukraine before 2022

MSF began working in Ukraine in 1999. Initially, our activities were focused on providing treatment for HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and hepatitis C. Since 2014, war has been raging in eastern Ukraine, in the oblasts (provinces) of Luhansk and Donetsk. For people living in small villages close to the fighting, access to healthcare remains a challenge. Between 2014 and 2019, MSF helped conflict-affected people in the region by mobilizing mobile clinics, offering support to health workers from local organizations and training them to provide mental health care.

In 2020, MSF transferred a three-year hepatitis C project to Mykolaiv and responded to the COVID-19 pandemic in Zhytomyr and Donetsk oblasts by donating personal protective equipment, rapid diagnostic tests and oxygen concentrators to health facilities. We also offered psychological support to healthcare staff, patients and communities. In Donetsk oblast, MSF provided home-based care for patients with mild to moderate symptoms through its mobile clinics.
