ZDOROVI supports the development of the humanitarian aid movement in Ukraine
Developing infrastructure for staying resilient
The first seminar of the series “Supporting war victims: coordination and interaction”, organized by the Aspen Institute Kyiv, was held in the capital. The event was attended by leading stakeholders in the humanitarian sector, who discussed mechanisms for effective coordination of representatives of the public sector, charitable organizations and international partners.
The format of the dialogue between the participants helped to identify key areas that require finding solutions for the development of the humanitarian assistance system, among them: establishing transparent rules of interaction, taking into account the peculiarities of wartime, government leadership in matters of legislative changes, taking into account and monitoring the needs of the affected population, improving the humanitarian response system.
According to the founder of ZDOROVI Nataliia Tulinova:
“Effective coordination of actions between participants in the humanitarian sphere is an opportunity to build a solid foundation for the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine. It is now impossible to assess the full extent of the consequences of the war, because it goes on. We are all working in emergency response mode, but it’s time to pay attention to a systemic strategy in the humanitarian sphere, which will help the population of Ukraine over the next years. There are many long-term processes at the legislative level that have to be noticed right away and taken into account as the practical experience that industry stakeholders have gained over these two years. Therefore, such dialogues between us are a valuable opportunity to have a global impact on helping those affected by war today and in the future.”
It should be noted that at the end of last year, the founder of ZDOROVI, Nataliia Tulinova, became a member of SAG, the governing advisory body of the Health Cluster under OCHA. Recently, the SAG, which included two Ukrainian and three international organizations, voted for a strategic review of the First Standard Allocation of UHF (Ukrainian Humanitarian Fund) funds for 2024. “I learned a lot from my foreign colleagues. And I also shared a lot, taking into account my knowledge of the healthcare system and the structure of medical care,” said Nataliia Tulinova.
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the National Humanitarian Aid Agency ZDOROVI has carried out 2,307 deliveries of medical supplies to 841 medical institutions in 374 settlements of Ukraine. Among them are cities and towns of 24 regions, that is, all of Ukraine, with the exception of the annexed peninsula of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. ZDOROVI’s large-scale humanitarian work occurs through cooperation with international partners, including MedShare, Embrace, Razom for Ukraine, Nova Ukraine, Americares, USAID, Philips and other charitable foundations and organizations.
