The Norwegian Refugee Council has analysed three projects of allocation of social housing for internally displaced (IDPs) in Donetsk oblast. Such allocations are complicated, as Ukrainian legislation does not list IDPs among the categories of population entitled for social housing. The only case when the local council managed to provide social housing to IDPs was through the application of the Laws “On Local Self-Government in Ukraine” and “On Housing Fund for Social Purposes”

An outbreak of measles in Ukraine is rapidly spreading. This year there have been 1,000 cases; that’s 20 times higher than the whole of last year, with measles reported among children, adolescents and adults in 14 of the country’s 24 provinces.
