The Czech Republic will give Ukraine two buses to evacuate the wounded and conduct training for rehabilitation specialists, the Ukrainian Ministry of Health reported.
The buses will allow to safely evacuate more than 10 seriously ill patients who currently need treatment abroad.
The Czech Republic also invests in the renovation of intensive care wards and operating rooms in Lviv and Vynnyky hospitals. This involves providing them with the necessary equipment and medical devices.
According to Deputy Minister of Health Oleksiy Yaremenko, since the beginning of the full-scale war, the Czech partners have provided Ukraine with numerous critical equipment and over 700 thousand medicines.
"Our healthcare system is currently preparing for an extremely challenging winter. We appreciate that our international partners are always ready to help us during these months. We are grateful to the Czech side for the systematic support in such a difficult time," Yaremenko said during a meeting with representatives of the Government of the Czech Republic.
Moreover, the Czech Republic is ready to join the development of rehabilitation services in Ukraine and implement several projects, in particular, aimed at training Ukrainian rehabilitation specialists.
Also, the Ukrainian side plans to study the Czech experience to improve the quality of services provided under the program "Surgical operations for adults and children in a one-day inpatient setting".
