Federal minister for Public Health Frank Vandenbroucke has announced that the government is preparing coordinated actions with the hospitals. These can range from supplying medical equipment or medication to accomodating victims. UZ Leuven will cooperate in all solidarity with the actions and instructions coming from the government.
To coordinate the actions taken by UZ Leuven and more specifically UZ Leuven's contribution to the reception of war victims, UZ Leuven set up a Ukraine crisis cell, led by CEO prof. dr. Wim Robberecht. The crisis cell is in close consultation with the RUZB (Council for university hospitals in Belgium) and the EUHA (European University Hospital Alliance), to be able to approach the initiatives in a coordinated manner.
