The Government plans to revert to consideration of five drastic reforms in the healthcare, education and pension sectors in September, claimed Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in the course of the session of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on Wednesday, August 23.
In this context, the Prime Minister touched upon pricing issues for medications in Ukraine and drew attention to the burning need to eradicate all corruption schemes existing in this sector.
«We will tackle corruption in procurement in an easy way – by transparency», stressed Volodymyr Groysman.
He recalled that this year the Government has allocated UAH 6 billion on the purchase of medical products. The procurement procedure is as close as possible to meet the needs of citizens due to the ProZorro system as well as procurement through international medical organizations launched by the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine.
Apart from that, the Head of Government drew the attention of representatives of local authorities to the need to improve the healthcare system on the ground, especially with regard to adding regions to a single register of patients with serious disease.
