The Government of Ukraine establishes and follows a new tradition of ensuring the persistent transformations that have been launched in the shape of formation and publication of special "transition books", which will give experts an idea of the real situation in a particular field and sphere and a list of further actions in order to consolidate and multiply the achieved results. The first such book has been created at the Ministry of Health and is available online at the official website of the Ministry.
Commenting on that, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman noted: "We are setting up a new tradition – instead of slamming the door, just to think how to ensure the persistent change we have triggered. The Ministries have received my commission to prepare transition books in their particular directions - a kind of messages for the next ministers-successors on the situation in the industry and what needs to be done. The first such book is ready", the Prime Minister said. "I expect similar books this month from other ministries."
It should be noted that the document prepared by the Ministry of Health is a thorough and detailed description of the current state of the healthcare system, the causes and directions of the most critical for the industry changes, the plans for these changes and an overview of the most important for the country projects that are already being implemented and need to be prolonged. Among those are radical and profound changes in the primary healthcare sector that have made it possible to increase salaries for doctors and medical staff, as well as to improve the quality of services; the Available Medicines program for the patients having asthma, diabetes and heart disease; the completion of the construction of the Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital - the second stage should be launched in operation by the end of the year; construction of a network of cardiology and perinatal centers; the launch of a new emergency - new treatment protocols, new speeds and quality of processing of requests for medical assistance; access to high-quality medical services, 100% provision with vaccines according to vaccination calendar, etc.
