WITH THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE!
WE HAVE BEEN THERE SINCE THE BEGINNING!
HCVI is dedicated to helping the people of Ukraine overcome illness and trauma in the setting of the most unimaginable and challenging of circumstances. Many have been forced to flee the country while others experience internal displacement. Those unable to flee their homes live under the threat of constant violence and suffer from both food and financial insecurity. Lack of access to healthcare services and medications is widespread.
HCVI is working to alleviate the burden of disease and injury in two ways. Our founder, Francis Duggan, MD, is presently in Ukraine, working alongside his Ukrainian healthcare colleagues. HCVI regularly ships large quantities of essential medication, equipment, and supplies. We are involved in both pre-hospital as well as hospital-based care in partnership with the Ministry of Health, the Kharkiv Regional Health System, Western Ukraine Specialized Children's Medical Center, Lviv Regional Hospital, Slovyansk Hospital, Kramatorsk #3 Hospital, and a growing number of partner hospitals in Ukraine. In addition, HCVI provides medical support and lifesaving medications, equipment, and supplies to multiple medic teams involved in pre-hospital care. Dr. Duggan is an Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Stop the Bleed instructor for the American College of Surgeons. In addition to direct patient care, HCVI is engaged in training others and delivering advanced technology, with the goal of increasing capabilities and empowering fellow healthcare providers to better meet the many challenges of war-related trauma.
On May 10, 2022 HCVI went live with its first of many hospital deployments in the Ukraine of HCVI's Digital Health Platform (telemedicine, telesurgery, teleradiology, and EHR). The speed and scope of this project owe a great deal to our recent partnership with SmartAid.
