All sectors of Ukrainian medicine need to be reformed, in particular the medical market. The Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine in synergy with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and international experts is shaping a detailed plan for drug registration changes. The goal is to update the existing procedure that is imperfect in comparison with world practices.
On October 27, the Ministry of Healthcare hosted regular meeting with representatives of the EBRD and international experts on the future reform of the drug registration system in Ukraine. During the meeting, cooperation was discussed regarding the development of the concept, which should not only improve the order of registration of drugs, but also provide concrete steps for the gradual retrofitting of the entire pharmaceutical regulatory system through its profound transformation.
In the course of the meeting the previous recommendations of the consortium of international experts, who in detail examined the situation of the pharmaceutical market in Ukraine and presented their proposals for its settlement in line international standards were also discussed.
«The health care reform that our team is currently putting into place in Ukraine is a profound and fundamental transformation of the whole system. Such a system existed in Poland back in 1989. In 26 years, Poland has done a lot to reach the level of health care that Ukrainians are as eager to do. And now we have to go through the same way that every free and progressive country has already gone through. We are committed to making everything possible for the Ukrainians to receive a decent system of medicine», underscored Ulana Suprun, Acting Minister of Healthcare of Ukraine.
