MDM has been operating in Ukraine since 2014, but from the 24th of February 2022, the situation has been altered dramatically. In terms of health the scope of needs has changed completely and geographically, the conflict line in the Donbas region has moved with new conflict areas appearing; these facts have created new areas of intervention and thematically, massive new health needs have emerged due to the open conflict.

The context is evolving and we need to constantly reassess the accesses and needs. At the moment, MdM is active in the following areas: the Donbas region through its field offices of Bahkmut and Sievierodonetsk (with limitation due to the current access), in the Eastern and central region (including Kharkiv, Butcha and Irpin) through its field office in Kiev and Dnipro and in the Western region through its field office in Chernivtsi.

MdM team is working in three main components with the aim of addressing the urgent health needs of the population, displaced and non-displaced, affected by the armed conflict in Ukraine:

Provision of emergency and non-emergency health items to Health facilities

Provision of basic health services (including SRH and MHPSS) to non-displaced conflict affected population and IDPs.
