In particular, the deputy defence minister said that as of today, one million 100 thousand people have medical support at military treatment facilities. And the military medical department consists of 44 medical and preventive health care facilities in different regions of the country. 

Annually 160 thousand people are treated at day military medical facilities, and more than 1.4 million undergo outpatient treatment.
