Bondarenko: Ukraine is on the verge of a medical collapse – people will die right on the streets

Health care reform is a great opportunity for black transplantologists. Ukraine has become a free donor platform, so the lives of millions of Ukrainians are at risk. This was in an exclusive commentary to the Kharkov News Agency, People's Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the VII convocation Elena Bondarenko. The health situation in Ukraine continues to be disastrous. A new reform, which began to be introduced under the former and. about. Ulyana Suprun, US Secretary of Health just kills Ukrainians. Closed hospitals, feldsher points, specialized dispensaries. People in the village are left without the help of doctors; nobody cares about their life and health. Medical staff massively travels abroad. There is nobody and nothing to treat Ukrainians Since the “revolution of hydrology”, time in Ukraine “for the sake of economy” has decreased by 800 hospitals.

Healthy leader of a sick people

Health care is falling apart. The head of state tells jokes. Everything goes its own way. The highest events dedicated to the urgent resolution of crisis phenomena in our medicine consisted of two parts. First, from the “meeting of Vladimir Putin with representatives of the public”, and immediately after it, from the “expanded meeting of the Presidium of the State Council”, chaired by the president. I note that both of these actions did not have to be similar to traditional ritual events, such as the annual big press conference of the head of state, a “direct line” with him, or a message with which he speaks to the establishment. After all, this time the occasion is purely business. Even scandalous. Ordinary people are openly dissatisfied with state medicine and especially with bureaucratic innovations in it. And physicians have lately been protesting louder against the aforementioned innovations, and against the rampant Continue Reading

"Many people think that if you beat doctors with sticks, they work better."

On October 31, the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation officially recognized the reduction in the number of doctors in many regions of Russia, and President Vladimir Putin on the same day proposed the creation of medical "special teams" from volunteers and students of medical schools, similar to student construction teams. All this happens against the background of strikes and layoffs of doctors in many regions of Russia due to "optimization" (in fact, reduction of hospitals and clinics), underfunding of ambulances and complaints of doctors about salaries. Semyon Halperin, president of the Doctor’s Defense League, in an interview with Present Times, called the current situation in Russian healthcare “complete collapse” and believes that officials who “stole budget money, optimized, closed hospitals, and carried out massive reductions” are responsible for it. None of them, Halperin emphasizes, was punished for his actions. – What does the reduction in the number of Continue Reading

Healthy leader of a sick people

Putin responds to people's discontent with state medicine and the apparent increase in tension within this system in the “straight line” genre with himself. The highest events dedicated to the urgent resolution of crisis phenomena in our medicine consisted of two parts.

Neurocomputer interfaces will give people extra power

Once, on a rainy morning, Bill was driving his motorcycle, when suddenly a mail truck stopped in front of him. Bill did not have time. The accident paralyzed his lower body. His autonomy – what was left of her – was reduced to voice commands, which allowed him to raise and lower the blinds in the room or adjust the angle of the bed with a motor. Otherwise, he relies on round-the-clock assistance. Vanya does not know Ann, who has Parkinson's disease; her hands tremble when she tries to apply makeup or weed the garden. None of them knows Steve, who became blind in adulthood due to a degenerative disease and whom his sister helps to navigate the world. Presenting the three of them together sounds like the beginning of a bad joke: a blind, paralyzed, and parkinson guy somehow enter the bar. But their stories are combined in a Continue Reading

"Dry out" – why treat sick old people?

My girlfriend's mom lives in a village near Moscow. Last month she felt bad, fell in her room. Well, the grandson was at home, called an ambulance. They took her to the hospital, and here she is there for a day, another week. And do not do anything with it. A friend decided to talk to a doctor: what is it with my mother, what is the diagnosis, how to treat? The doctor, a woman of about forty, was surprised: “What do you want from me?” “I want you to examine your mother, find out her problems and prescribe the appropriate medications,” a friend explained. – At seventy-eight?
