Ukrainian medical institutions lack for 18 thousand doctors.

      According to an UNIAN correspondent, Health Minister of Ukraine Yuri Poliachnenko claimed this to journalists in Kyiv today.

      “Most of all, our medical institutions are understaffed with deficit professions – pathologists, family doctors, emergency doctors”, Yuri Poliachenko said.

      According to the Health Minister, to provide regions with medical staff, it is planned to restore social privileges for doctors, in particular, to raise their salaries, to equip workplaces with modern equipment, to provide with dwelling and allotments.
