Health needs assessment of the adult population in Ukraine: survey report: October 2023
AbstractThe ongoing full-scale aggression by the Russian Federation continues to exert unprecedented pressure on all aspects of public life in Ukraine. Despite the significant negative impact of the war, the findings indicate that the country’s health system remains resilient, and that access to health services is relatively good. The regions that experienced active hostilities in the early stages of the invasion have regained access to medical care, and no longer differ significantly from the regions that did not experience active hostilities. However, residents of regions that are still experiencing active hostilities and areas that are not fully controlled by the Government of Ukraine have less access to family doctors and medicines than the rest of the country. In terms of access to a family doctor, people who have been internally displaced continue to be more vulnerable than local communities.This report is based on data collected in the fourth round of the quantitative cross-sectional survey of self-reported health needs of the general population in Ukraine. It presents the results of a survey conducted in October 2023.
