All-Ukrainian Medical Associations, whose members are some 20 thousand doctors, politicians turned to the statement, which expressed concern about interference in the highly specialized medical topics. In a statement provided to the press service of Ministry of Health, in particular, that:
Ukrainian Medical Associations (VULT)
All-Ukrainian Medical Associations is deeply concerned about the comments and statements of many politicians on the situation surrounding the epidemic of influenza and acute respiratory viral infections in Ukraine. Intruding into a treatment process, and trying to replace doctors, giving low-quality information and nefahovi comments, they worsen the situation. Unprofessional actions create excitement and bring havoc to society.
Dear politicians! Mind your own business! Remember that your dilettante expression can not destroy one human life! Using the theme for their own PR people's health is at least immoral!
For the definition of preventive measures and treatment, consult only to specialists. Remember from your doctor to timely treatment depends on the safety, health and life you and your family. Only the union of the patient and doctor is the key to victory over the disease!
Press Service of the Ministry of Health for information VULT President A. Musa
Vaccinations against flu proving to be hard sell
Officials fear vaccine fears could make epidemic much worse.
In their efforts to contain an escalating flu epidemic and prevent a potentially bigger wave of infections early next year, Ukraine’s political elite and health-care professionals are desperately trying to revive trust in the nation’s vaccination program.
That trust was broken with a rare vaccine-related death of a child in May who was innoculated against measles. The incident sparked a nationwide scandal. In the confusion, hundreds of thousands of citizens refused to get vaccines for flu and other illnesses in the ensuing panic, sparking health officials back then to warn of a pending flu epidemic. And, as a result, a combination of seasonal flu and the A/H1N1 strain hit the nation particularly hard in recent weeks, health experts said.
Referring to the much-publicized vaccine scandal from early this year, Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko said on Nov. 9 that the country’s “vaccination program has been completely destroyed.”
“We will be faced with more difficult problems” if citizens do not regain trust in the country’s vaccination program in coming months, she added.
The socially disruptive measures – closing of schools and banning of public gatherings – that were introduced on Oct. 30 by Tymoshenko’s government helped to mitigate infection rates. Still, health officials said that as of Nov. 11 more than 1 million Ukrainians were registered with flu-related illnesses, while more than 200 had died since October 29.
