During a meeting led by Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk, the participants discussed the development of an appropriate mechanism.

One of the city councils in the Chernihiv region raised concerns about the constant Russian shelling, which has led to the population fleeing to safer regions. This includes medical workers.

The medical units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine stationed in the community assist civilian doctors in providing medical care to the population, especially in emergencies.

The legislative level must determine how military doctors can provide medical care to the civilian population.

The meeting proposed regulating the relationship between military doctors and civilian medical institutions. The Law of Ukraine ‘Fundamentals of the Legislation of Ukraine on Healthcare’ outlines this procedure. This summer, the law was amended to allow military personnel to provide medical care in civilian facilities.

The Ministry of Reintegration’s head instructed the responsible authorities to consider this possibility.

They discussed involving employees of medical institutions in the TOT in this work.

The Vice Prime Minister is currently focusing on this issue, which is relevant to many frontline settlements.
