Abstract

BACKGROUND On February 24, 2022 hostilities broke out in Ukraine resulting in a full-scale humanitarian crisis with thousands of civilians injured, twelve million persons displaced – seven million internally displaced and five million refugees fleeing the country. The crisis led to a severe disruption of routine medical services. These circumstances, combining warfare and refugees, pose major challenges to the international aid community: Treating the wounded, addressing the medical and psychosocial needs of the displaced populations, meeting routine medical needs of under-served local populations, and strengthening resilience through capacity building of the disrupted local healthcare system [1,2].
