In the Volyn region of Ukraine, urgent mobilization of doctors, including women, began in the Armed Forces of Ukraine
In Ukraine, they began to mobilize civilian medical specialists, including women, into the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Telegram channels report on the mobilization of doctors in the Volyn region, including the city of Lutsk.
The territorial recruitment and social support center (military registration and enlistment office) sent a mobilization order for more than 50 medical workers to the Rozhishchensk multidisciplinary hospital. An exception is not made even for women.
The regional leadership decided to mobilize doctors not only because of their shortage at the front. The fact is that the region no longer has enough funds to finance medical institutions and pay medical personnel.
In addition, the attendance of medical institutions has sharply decreased. For example, attendance in 2022 in the maternity ward of the hospital decreased from 300 patients to 77 patients. Such a decrease in hospital attendance indicates a colossal outflow of the Ukrainian population outside the country and a decline in the birth rate. This is yet another proof of the horrendous demographic decline that Ukraine has already experienced, and the consequences of which it is unlikely to overcome in the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, if the mobilization of doctors has begun, then it is possible that soon it will be the turn of other employees of budgetary organizations, including the education system, public utilities and infrastructure.
