Crucial functions of the state include creating basic conditions required for a comfortable and safe living and opportunities to unlock the people's potential. Effective development of human capital creates the basis for the growth of national economy and for Ukraine’s stronger competitive position worldwide.
The Government's key performance indicators in this area include improving human development index rankings and reducing mortality and poverty rates.
In order to achieve sustainable development of human capital, which is among the priority goals of the Government of Ukraine, a number of transformations in key social areas are to take place, particularly:
- Providing equal access for people to high-quality medical services by creating a new health care system, based on the principles of health insurance, reforming and improvement of medical care.
- Transforming the Ukrainian education system into an innovative environment where school and university students acquire key competences required for a successful life in modern world, while academics enjoy all the opportunities and resources required for their work.
- Introducing an honest and fair pension system, which puts a stop to the significant gap between special and ordinary pensions, while citizens that were making contributions during their employment period without hiding incomes get a deserved decent compensation after retirement.
- Enhancing social support to create conditions for providing assistance to those who need it most, protecting low-income categories of people, and supporting them throughout the process of social integration.
Protecting people's lives and health, enhancing education, providing effective financial support to scientists, fair pensions and social protection are the objectives that the Government sets out to achieve to create a foundation for a solid and thriving Ukrainian society.
