This paper summarises the impact of the Russian invasion on the health and health services of the population of Ukraine. The war has resulted in large numbers of military and civilian casualties. It has undermined progress in the transition of the Ukrainian health system from a Soviet model to a West European model. The war will result in a substantial burden of physical and mental injury that will require a considerable investment in money and human capital to mitigate.
