    I’ve read similar story of an Israeli girl visiting Voronezh central hospital. She was shocked not only by the quality of the building but also by service and medical procedur she was offered. She was bleeding and needed to visit gynecologist. They could not get standard medical checks you will have done in a regular hospital. She called her doctor in Israel. Later, someone helped her to find a doctor in a private clinic.  She was a Russian speaker, so she wrote an lengthy story with pictures attached. It received wide-spread public support. The government of the city began an investigation.

    We have Russian medical tourists in Belarus from western districts of Russia, who are fearing to get infections in Russian hospitals.

    Well all ex-Socialist countries have a pretty much the same state of medical care and hospital infrastructure, quite sad.

    Not the same. They were not the same in Soviet times too. The worst are in Asian Republics except possibly for Kazakhstan major centres. Then regional Russia. Russian major cities have decent hospitals. Ukraine also has terrible health-care despite Kiev had a known medical school and specialists. Belarus invested plenty in the last 20 years into health-care. Not only cities but also towns have decent hospital in comparison to other republics. The Baltic states also have decent hospitals.

    Rich people of Russia and Ukraine seek treatment in Germany or Israel. Poor people collect money through appeals seeking complex medical treatment abroad.

    Belarus gets many doctors and nurses from Ukraine because of better pay and facilities. Our problem is that we are loosing the medical professional to the western countries where they get paid more.

    @Sviatogor as time goes by i’m getting the impression that Belorussians are the most “sane” group among Slavs tbh :D No neighbor quarrels, overall peaceful, stable country and a pretty country too. gg!

    I am an American and I am certainly not going to bash Russia or any other country but this is frightening really. I guess I am just lucky to be here where medical care is excellent in most cases. All 50 states here have Medicaid programs for the poor who don’t have medical insurance and they get the same treatment as most everyone else. I have Medicare which is part of Social Security and get great treatment. I am 67 and retired. My heart goes out to all who need medical care but face poor or non existent services.
