Pregnant women who, due to active hostilities, have moved to other regions and received the status of an internally displaced person also have the right to receive care and give birth free of charge.

This also applies to those who remain in cities where access to medical care is difficult and there is a need to go to a different hospital.

Detailed information on facilities providing pregnancy services can be found in the contact center of the National Health Service, by calling the hotline number 16-77.
