Ukraine appeal: Facilitating the supply of medical equipment

EIT Health launched the Ukraine appeal to facilitate the supply of medical equipment for Ukraine.

Millions of Ukrainians fleeing this war have already sought refuge in neighbouring European countries, and many more continue to make the journey. The conflict has caused many to escape with injuries, and there is a desperate need for medical equipment including first aid kits, surgical apparatus, and other crucial medical supplies.

EIT Health joins forces with the Polish Medical Mission

EIT Health has partnered with the Polish Medical Mission, a leading humanitarian organisation working with healthcare professionals on the border of Ukraine to care for those crossing and those who are in need in Ukraine. These people are scared, hurt, and often in need of urgent medical assistance.

With a network of approximately 150 world-leading partners from research, academia, industry, and healthcare delivery, as well as thousands of healthcare start-ups and entrepreneurs, EIT Health is bringing the community together to facilitate action. They are mobilising the EIT Health community by asking the network to support in the effort to supply much needed equipment to Ukrainian refugees. Together they will work to help facilitate the supply of medical equipment needed on the front line.

Current medical equipment needs

The medical equipment requirements outlined are regularly verified with the Ministry of Health in Ukraine, Ukrainian hospitals and the Polish Medical Mission. We will work with the Medical University of Lodz and our partners to facilitate logistics.
