HI and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine sign a memorandum of understanding to improve the quality of access to health services.
On 9 February 2023, Handicap International (HI) and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine signed a framework agreement to boost the deployment of HI’s activities in the country.
The agreement covers various projects:
“Every day, the war continues to ruin the lives of Ukrainians. Those who have been injured and need rehabilitation are also the most vulnerable. We can only address such major challenges with the help of the international community. HI is one of our most trusted partners. I am grateful for HI’s strong support and active involvement in the rehabilitation projects. This agreement is an important joint commitment to helping the injured return to normal life more quickly,” said Viktor Liashko, Ukraine’s Minister of Health
HI’s teams have been present in Ukraine for almost a year helping to improve access to health services for the population and particularly to rehabilitation and psychosocial support services :
With more than 40% of the Ukrainian population in need of humanitarian aid, this framework agreement is crucial to ensuring a more effective humanitarian response.
