    The Government engages in developing proposals concerning ways of changing the system of financing of the healthcare sector, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman speaking to reporters in Vinnytsia.

    "We are now preparing proposals on how we will change the system of funding in hospitals”, said the Head of Government. “A health insurance component is extremely important. It implies the change in the system of financing of the entire healthcare sector. We will offer the option shortly, which we are to present to the Ukrainian society and introduce a plan of how the system may vary".

    According to him, the resource allocated to satisfy the needs of the health care system might be used much more effectively.

    "What are these means used for today? As a rule, in the old system? In financing walls and patient capacity. We want to change this ideology so that we funded a particular Ukrainian citizen who receives a particular medical service. We want to invest in such new system, new technology. We deny investing in abandoned buildings, in terrible conditions people occur in many territories, districts, regions of Ukraine", he urged.

    Volodymyr Groysman assures what matters are the conditions in each particular hospital instead of the number of hospitals in each particular area.
