Since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia on February 24, 2022, Ukraine has been experiencing a severe healthcare crisis due to a shortage of healthcare professionals and a low supply of healthcare products and facilities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), many healthcare facilities have been destroyed, leaving many without proper medical care.

WHO has called upon everyone for assistance in this medical crisis. One way to help is to donate surplus medical supplies. Another way to help is to donate money to WHO or any other humanitarian effort.

Lastly, healthcare professionals can volunteer for on-site medical support. They will be taken to areas where help is needed. Doctors also can aid the Ukraine Telehealth Relief program, which does not require them to be on-site.
