The ongoing aggression in Ukraine has caused hundreds of thousands of innocent people to leave their homes to seek safety and medical assistance. Hospitals and clinics have been unable to keep up with the influx of patients. Our heart goes out to all of those affected by this crisis in your country. 


We have founded Health Tech Without Borders in response to this ongoing health and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Health Tech Without Borders is an independent, global non-profit movement providing digital health and telehealth aid where it’s needed most. Health Tech without Borders is not affiliated with Doctors Without Borders, which is a registered trademark of Bureau International de Medecins Sans Frontieres.

This alliance aims at federating the work of all the health tech volunteers, companies, and organizations, to allow for a more coordinated and impactful response, anytime and anywhere.


We are a multidisciplinary group of professionals unified with a common purpose: use health technology to help the people in need. Whether you’re a doctor, nurse, academic, or health tech provider, we want you to join our movement.

"Ukraine Telehealth Relief" aims at providing free of charge telehealth and remote consultations to the people of Ukraine.


Three objectives were identified:

1. to help hospitals in Ukraine cope with the influx of patients, primarily pediatric;

2. to provide psychological support to people affected by the conflict;

3. to accompany Ukrainian refugees who have left their homes and now live in other parts of Europe.
