The EU supports Ukrainians forced to move to the european countries due to the war
EU Delegation to Ukraine official message
Since Russia’s renewed unprovoked, unjustified, and brutal attack on Ukraine on 24 February 2022, the life of all Ukrainians has changed dramatically. The ongoing war is causing civilian deaths and injuries, as well as severe damages to homes, educational and health facilities daily. Having lived in Ukraine for almost eight years, the events of the past weeks have been particularly shocking and painful, and my daily thoughts are with friends and colleagues, and all Ukrainians. The European Union, Ukraine’s strategic partner for more than 30 years now, has redoubled its efforts to assist Ukrainians and the Ukrainian government to overcome the daily consequences of the war.
This particularly applies to the humanitarian aid and healthcare support for those 7.7 million people who were internally displaced within the country as well as for those 5.2 million people who have been forced to flee their homes to move abroad. The project “Support to Ukraine for Developing a Modern Public Health System” works in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health and we have jointly identified healthcare support to Ukrainian citizens abroad as a critical need to address. To cover the information gap on the healthcare facilities in other European countries serving people living with HIV, TB, hepatitis B and C, and for people on substitutional therapy, we launched an information campaign via the special website treatment4ukraine.com. This platform is supposed to be a guide and a source of verified, clear and accurate information for each Ukrainian who leaves Ukraine to other European countries on where he/she can go for treatment of a specific disease and/ or condition, under which circumstances the treatment can be provided and what is the additional support available. The EU Delegation to Ukraine aims at ensuring that Ukrainians forced to leave their country are protected and secure within the EU Member States they are staying in, and our team foresees such a platform as a long-term support to get across information on proper treatment options.

What is this website for
Information for Ukrainians on the therapy abroad
The war in Ukraine, escalated on February 24, 2022, by Russian Federation, has caused the worst migration crisis since WWII in Europe. Over 5 million of Ukrainians were forced to flee their home country seeking for a safer place to stay within other European countries. As a response to the situation, the EU Delegation to Ukraine together with the partners came up with the initiative to support Ukrainians in the public health field by providing the proper information support via the special website.
The main purpose of this website is to provide complete and accurate information about availability of healthcare in Europe for Ukrainians who were forced to leave Ukraine. Specific information is provided for Ukrainians who live with HIV, hepatitis, tuberculosis, and those who are on substitutional therapy.
The team of the international experts in public health, in cooperation with Ukrainian partners, tried to collect relevant information available in public resources, including official websites of ministries, institutions and international organisations and associations, but also to contact relevant actors. Not always we were successful in our efforts. The result is the set of information that was available at the moment of information collection, but we will try to update the information regularly.
We also tried to confirm each information by available online or other resources or through communication with relevant institution. However, we are aware that some information may still not be either complete or accurate due to the possible changes of the rules in several countries, so we invite you to contact us if you identify some errors. In that case, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information presented on this website is a compilation of the publicly available data. We tried to indicate the source of every information and we invite you to further explore the sources. Information not publicly available comes from direct communication with relevant institutions.
