If you need medical care you may turn both to public or private medical institutions (polyclinics, hospitals, medical centres), addresses of some of them are given below. Be ready to pay for the visit (the price depends on the situation). If you have an insurance policy, you’d rather find out in advance, whether the insurance company will accept the certificate of this medical institution. Bear in mind that your insurance does not cover dentist’s services.


Medicines are available in drugstores, of which there quite a lot in all districts of Kharkiv. You should remember, that not all of them work 24 hours (if the drugstore is closed, you will find the address of the nearest open drugstore on the door sign), as well as the fact that some medicines can be bought only on doctor’s prescription.

Pharmacists working in drugstores have a high qualification and can always advise you in choosing this or that medicine. Information about the medicines available in drugstores can be received at 0–67.


oing on a trip remember to arrange an insurance policy. Tourists from abroad need the policy of the State joint-stock insurance company of Ukraine on providing urgent medical care to foreigners. There may occur a situation when your insurance company has a deal with Ukrainian colleagues on acknowledging insurance policies, in this case your company will help you receive free medical care.

Foreigners can obtain an insurance policy in Ukraine only at Ukrmedstrakh Insurance Company, situated in Kyiv. Kharkiv has offices of many other insurance companies, rendering a traditional range of insurance services.
