    Ministry of Health of Ukraine, posted 10 June 2023 11:23

    The project, which is being implemented by the Ministry of Health with the support of the World Bank, aims to strengthen the supply of healthcare facilities, including the restoration, renovation and modernisation of infrastructure. It includes reconstruction of damaged medical infrastructure, renovation of premises and buildings, and equipping medical facilities with modern equipment to increase energy independence.

    Medical facilities in all regions can apply for and receive funding for infrastructure and solar panel projects. Infrastructure projects aim to restore and modernise government or community health facilities damaged by fighting, and to improve energy efficiency and access to alternative energy sources.

    In addition, primary healthcare facilities can apply for the installation of solar energy equipment – solar panels, a battery and an inverter. In this way, primary healthcare facilities will not only be able to use solar energy as an autonomous power source, but also to accumulate it and reduce electricity costs.

    “The Healthcare Enhancement and Lifesaving (HEAL) Ukraine Project is a major infrastructure project being implemented by the Ministry of Health in partnership with the World Bank. A recovery project office has been established at the level of the Ministry of Health to receive proposals for infrastructure projects for healthcare facilities, out which projects will be selected for implementation. Therefore, any institution can apply for participation in the project according to the selection criteria and get the opportunity to restore or strengthen the infrastructure of the health facility,” said Deputy Minister of Health and Chief State Sanitary Doctor Ihor Kuzin.

    Proposals can be submitted by: military administrations, executive bodies of villages, towns, cities, district councils in cities, state and municipal medical institutions.
