UKR: PoU War Trauma Rehabilitation

Direct consequences of war result in an increased number of trauma patients evacuated from active conflict zones in need of physical rehabilitation, mental health and psychosocial support, and access to assistive technologies. The number of patients undergoing treatment is set to multiply in the coming weeks and months. This project seeks to rapidly ramp up urgently needed post-traumatic physical rehabilitation capacities (equipment and practitioner training) at Ukrainian hospitals in selected regions.

Resultate von früheren Phasen:   Russian aggression since 24th February 2022 has triggered an unprecedented refugee crisis with 7.1 million IDPs and 4.4 million refugees. The ecalation of hostilities has caused mass civilian casualties and increased number of injured and traumatised people seeking for lifesaving healthcare and for rehabilitation services. Number of patients are referred to neighbouring countries for treatment but in view of increasing need for rehabilitation service provision, local rehabilitation capacities need to be strengthened.
