Doctors Without Borders has a longstanding presence in Ukraine, including in regions of eastern
Ukraine that have been affected by armed conflict since 2014. A large part of our work from 2014
to 2021 was responding to the needs of patients with HIV, tuberculosis, or other chronic
illnesses. When the war escalated dramatically on February 24, 2022, we had to make the painful
decision to halt our normal activities.
Our teams are witnessing the impact of the conflict on civilians but determining the true extent of medical needs within the country remains challenging. We are preparing for a range of scenarios, reinforcing capacity for surgical care, emergency medicine, and mental health support for displaced people. MSF has been in contact with Ukrainian hospitals that are receiving trauma patients wounded in the fighting. Many hospitals are also facing shortages of supplies, mainly for emergencies, trauma care, and surgery.
