The article highlights the view of the authors on the system of
organization of medical support of the Ukrainian Defense Forces
and identifies a number of urgent problems that need to be
addressed at the organizational and legislative levels. Questions
of terminology are considered, definitions of individual terms are
given and their semantic load is specified. The authors examined
the levels of medical support provided by the defense forces, the
qualitative characteristics of medical assistance during the stages
of medical evacuation, its volume and content, options for
enhancing medical care and features of medical rehabilitation of

This will prevent many misunderstandings and artificially created
The above material is information for discussing and deciding on
the creation of a modern system of medical support for the
Ukrainian Defense Forces.
