71% of the outpatients and midwifery units in the villages of the annexed Crimea are experiencing problems with medical equipment, according to the report of the All-Russian People's Front (ONF), which summed up the monitoring of accessibility and quality of primary medical care.
The activists of the organization note that in addition to problems with medical equipment (it is either outdated or not sufficient) the buildings in which the medical facilities are located are often in an emergency condition.
Many medical institutions have no sewage and water supply, and also have problems with heating.
“This even results in the fact that children are actually not received in winter. In 43% of the examined outpatients and midwifery units, toilets are located outside the building; most health facilities do not have a full-fledged accessible environment. In one third of cases a shortage of consumables is observed,” the study says.
According to the activists of the All-Russian People's Front, most outpatients and midwifery units lack medical workers.
“Some facilities have not enough specialists, others have no manager, and one of the units employs only a janitor at all,” the public figures told.
Computers and Internet access are available only in 25% of outpatients and midwifery units and dispensaries.
Reportedly, the activists conducted monitoring in the villages near Alushta, Feodosia and the villages of Simferopol, Bilohirsk, Krasnohvardeysk, Bakhchisaray, Lenin, Dzhankoy, Saki and Krasnoperekopsky districts of the Crimea with a population of up to two thousand people.
Earlier, the Sevastopol charity organization "Mobile Medical Center" told how accessible medical services looks in the occupied Crimea.
QHA reported that after the occupation in the Crimea, the situation with people's access to medical services seriously deteriorated.
