The minimum wages of Ukrainian health workers next year will be UAH 22k-25k. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine Maksym Stepanov on the air of Channel 5.
According to the minister, a decent salary is one of the main factors for stopping the departure of medical personnel abroad. At the same time, he added that not only every single doctor is important for the authorities, but every health worker.
In addition, Stepanov informed that during the period of the coronavirus epidemic in Ukraine, about 35,000 doctors have already quit.
“At the moment I do not have accurate information on the number of people who quit, but this is about 35,000. They sometimes quit and move to other hospitals and other medical institutions. Therefore, we will be able to do this analysis on all statistical data when the corresponding year ends,” the head of the Ministry of Health said.
