Working in a warzone: Crown Agents’ crucial first-wave response to the crisis in Ukraine

On 24th February, Russia invaded Ukraine. As the unprovoked military assault upended normal life, civilians were forced to flee their homes or take refuge.

Having worked in Ukraine for 25 years and been embedded in the Ministry of Health for five, Crown Agents has an in-depth knowledge of the Ukrainian health landscape and links to distribution networks. Our experienced Ukraine team were therefore able to successfully navigate the challenges of operating in a war-torn country during our first-wave response to deliver life-saving medical equipment, responding directly to acute needs and working in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
