Direct Relief is working with Ukraine's Ministry of Health and other groups in the region to provide requested medical aid-from oxygen concentrators to critical care medicines-while preparing to offer longer-term assistance to people displaced or affected by the war. Mass displacement leads to a host of health problems. Direct Relief is already working with medical manufacturers to source medical aid needed in the coming weeks and months.
Health concerns during this time include medical needs for hundreds of thousands of people that have been internally displaced within Ukraine and many others that have fled into refugee camps that have been established in the neighboring countries of Moldova, Poland, and others.
Drawing on its extensive history of humanitarian response, Direct Relief is preparing to support overwhelmed health systems working to care for these impacts, as more information becomes available. Direct Relief is also working with the manufacturers of essential medical products to facilitate donations to assist Ukrainians affected by conflict, whether they are still in the country or have fled to one of the neighboring nations receiving refugees.
The long-term impact will be improved health for people who have been affected by the crisis in Ukraine.
