    The Government will help people who want to learn a new profession and get a job. This was emphasised by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.

    During its session on March 21, the Cabinet of Ministers approved a document that expands the range of people eligible for a special voucher for professional retraining, advanced training, and education.

    "This is a voucher of more than UAH 25,000 provided by the Employment Centre to help people learn new skills and professions and find a job in demand on the labour market," the Prime Minister said.

    In addition, the Government supported a pilot project to switch some social institutions to financing based on the model of the healthcare guarantee system.

    According to Denys Shmyhal, currently, in Ukraine, a fixed amount is not allocated to medical institutions, but payments are made for the number of services provided to patients.

    "As part of the pilot project, we plan to introduce a similar model for social services in two institutions of the Ministry of Social Policy. We have already seen that this model helps to improve the quality of services and the efficiency of budget spending. Therefore, we will apply and develop it," the Prime Minister stressed.
