Charitable Foundation Metropolitan Sheptytsky Hospital is a founder of the project "High-quality medicine in Ukrainian villages" -.
“While thinking about our project, we knew exactly why and whom we were organizing it for. Doctors noticed that patients in country-sides have more health issues than other citizens. That fact has encouraged the hospital administration to start a new medical program that would allow the rural population to identify diseases before it's too late and also motivate villagers to have more responsible attitude to disease prevention – read more here. - Our team decided: if the patient does not go to the doctor, the doctor must come to the patient! We are ready to continue, on a charity basis, examining, advising and training all people who need a help and are unable to obtain quality medical services. If we save one person or prevent at least one disease, our project will not be in vain, though! ”
