Britain's ongoing support for Ukraine 2) - medical support

Yesterday it was confirmed that Britain has delivered over four million medical items to Ukraine, as we continue supporting the Ukrainian Government in the face of the health emergency caused by Russia’s invasion.

  • Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing a medical emergency, disrupting supply chains, and denying Ukrainians access to vital treatment– causing untold suffering.
  • So the UK has provided an extra 175,000 doses of crucial medicines for diabetics and people with chronic conditions who are unable to access treatment. This builds on over 4 million medical items we have donated, including wound packs and intensive care equipment on 11 delivery flights.
  • Britain will continue doing everything we can to provide humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine, to help them access the treatments they deserve and the equipment they need to save lives.
