The Ukraine War in data: 869 attacks on healthcare facilities

Week 22: Caregivers and their places of work have been among the victims of the Russian invasion.

According to Ukraine’s health ministry, 18 medical workers have been killed and more than 50 injured since the war began; 746 medical facilities have been damaged by Russian attacks — an additional 123 facilities have been completely destroyed. The ministry also offered data on how the gravely wounded continue to receive urgent care; an average of four evacuation flights per week transport Ukrainians abroad for medical treatment. To date, 1,274 Ukrainians have been medevaced for treatment.

In a Facebook post, the health ministry cited its findings as proof of a “targeted destruction of the medical infrastructure.”
