Ukrainian health expert on Mental Health Awareness Week

May
Nataliia Toropova, a public health expert and head of Ukrainian NGO Healthy Initiatives, says we need to focus efforts on addressing the mental and physical health implications the war has had on Ukrainians.
A former WHO program coordinator and grantee of the Foundation for a Smoke Free World, Nataliia recently undertook the perilous journey to safety with her family. While displaced herself, Nataliia continues to support Ukrainians through her work on public health.
Over five million people have fled Ukraine according to the UN, with an additional 7.7 million displaced within the country – creating an unprecedented public health crisis.
