Ukraine: first paramedics graduate from EU-funded training programme in Donetsk and Luhansk

The first students of the new speciality of ‘Emergency Medical Technician’ have completed their training course, supported by the European Union, the European Investment Bank (EIB), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine, together with national partners.

On 31 March, 20 ambulance drivers completed the three-month training course at Bakhmut Medical College and can now provide emergency medical care as paramedics. According to the updated Ukrainian legislation, in four years, all members of emergency medical teams (particularly drivers) will be required to have the appropriate training.

The training and equipment of the Emergency Medical Technicians Centre at Bakhmut College with mannequins, consumables, furniture, computers and distance learning equipment was carried out under the UN Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme at a total cost of US$33,300, with EU financial support.
