Why this is interesting:
Due to active hostilities taking place over a large area, targeted attacks by the enemy on Ukraine’s health care, and large-scale displacement, the risks of the spread of infectious diseases, including tuberculosis, are increasing. However, despite the war, the specialists of the anti-tuberculosis service minimize risks and implement innovative practices.
