Last year, 130 Ukrainian soldiers who were injured in the war received rehabilitation services in Latvia, and this year it could be around 120 soldiers, the Ministry of Health said January 27.

A total of 130 Ukrainian soldiers who were injured in the war were transported to Latvia in 2022, and healthcare services were received in Rīga East Clinical University Hospital (RAKUS) and the National Rehabilitation Center (NRC) “Vaivari”.

43 of the wounded soldiers received examinations, specialist counseling, surgical procedures, post-operative rehabilitation measures, and necessary medical care at RAKUS.

Vaivari has accommodated 89 troops, as well as several civilians who have been injured in the war, and provided rehabilitation in cases of multiple and combined functioning disorders following polytrauma with damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, including spinal cord damage, complicated bone fractures, amputations, prosthetics.

Latvia also plans to help the wounded Ukrainian soldiers this year by continuing cooperation between Latvian and Ukrainian hospitals. Latvia is expected to host 120 Ukrainian soldiers.
