The Government aims to ensure Ukrainians are among the first to have access to innovative and effective medicines. This was emphasized by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during a Government session.
On November 24, the Cabinet of Ministers expanded the list of drugs used to treat COVID-19.
"This will allow us to quickly interact and negotiate with global manufacturers the supply of drugs with high efficiency, as well as those at the final stages of research. After all, when drugs enter the market, manufacturers usually have agreements on the supply of drugs to other countries," told Denys Shmyhal.
Besides, the Government has approved the procedure for using the UAH 150 million subvention to local budgets for the purchase of oxygen stations. According to the Prime Minister, the program is aimed at increasing the number of hospital beds with centralized oxygen supply.
