Update on ESE support for Ukraine

The work of the ESE Ukraine Task force continues, chaired by ESE President, Martin Reincke. The group meets on a biweekly basis and benefits from the invaluable input of Boris Mankovskyy, President of the Ukrainian Diabetology Association, and Oksana Khyzhnyak, Vice President of the Ukrainian Association of Pediatric Endocrinology, who provide essential updates on the situation ‘on-the-ground’ in Ukraine.   

ESE is pleased to have provided translations for emergency cards into Ukrainian and Russian in the following areas:

  • diabetes insipidus and desmopressin use
  • diabetes mellitus
  • adrenal insufficiency
  • hypoparathyroidism
  • hypothyroidism.

These are all available to download.

You can also view our map indicating 40 centres that can provide support for Ukrainian refugees. We also continue to assess how ESE can facilitate the provision of endocrine drugs to areas of need. 

The focus of the task force has turned towards supporting educational activities. We are pleased to have provided support for free access to any endocrine professional in Ukraine to attend our educational events, either online or physically, with access to our meeting grants for travel.  In addition, ESE is providing access to its full library of educational content at ESE On Demand.

Please access the emergency cards, upload your centre's information onto the map, or inform any Ukrainian colleagues about ESE's educational provision. 

If you have any questions, please email ese-ukrainian-support@ese-hormones.org. 

Thank you for your support.
