Ukraine to fire all feldshers

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine will fire all feldshers and replace them with paramedics. As of November 1 the position of feldsher was liquidated and all such personnel should lose their jobs in accordance with a Ministry of Economic Development order #6327.


The Economic Development Ministry has never issued any order entitled  #6327.  But there is a law and a Cabinet of Ministers executive order classifying medical professions, according to which all medical professional titles have been streamlined according to international classifications and European Union practice. Ukraine has approved a new classification of professions effective November 1 so that Ukraine’s health care sector reflects international norms. The Health Ministry stressed that the new classification does not entail anyone being fired, medical workers will now be using new professional names and will undergo additional training necessary to meet international standards.
