Ukraine has been rebuilding or repairing war-damaged hospitals, clinics and other medical buildings at an average rate of 1.4 facilities a day since Russian forces invaded, according to data from the Ukrainian Ministry of Health.

From the invasion on Feb 24 of last year to Sept 5 of this year, 799 medical facilities were partially or fully repaired, the Ukrainian Ministry of Health said in a press release. Of those, 384 were fully restored and another 415 partially restored, mostly in the regions of Mykolaiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Kyiv, Kharkiv and Chernihiv.

At the same time, 1,427 facilities have been damaged during the war and 189 completely destroyed, seriously degrading the medical infrastructure in the Kharkiv, Donetsk, Mykolaiv, Kyiv and Chernihiv regions, according to the release.

“Today, the process of restoring the medical infrastructure is one of the state's priorities to ensure the availability of medical care to the population,” the ministry said.
