50 thousand doctors to leave Ukraine in coming two years

Employees of medical institutions massively leave Ukraine due to low wages, head of the Parliamentary Committee on Health care Olga Bogomolets stated at the meeting of the Verkhovna Rada's conciliation council.

"Today, the government is pursuing an absolutely shameful policy towards the medical community. 70 thousand doctors have already gone abroad, and in the next two years we expect to lose another 50 thousand Ukrainian doctors who are now paid a salary of 3200 hryvnias – doctor, nurse and paramedic," said Bogomolets, who headed the medical service of the Maidan during the overthrow of Yanukovich.
