Ukraine's Acting Healthcare Minister Ulyana Suprun stated that she would agree to lead the authority on the condition that the people in the government do not impede the ongoing reforms. She said that in her interview with Deutsche Welle.
Suprun said that her candidacy was upheld by the current parliamentary coalition.
'We often say that certain matters of healthcare are a bit beyond the politics because people get sick regardless of the political situation, and we're bound to help everyone and provide high-quality medical services. We'll be following the situation over the next six months, and we're ready to cooperate with any well-reasoned political force in order to explain the course of reforms and provide the necessary funding for this field', Suprun said.
The official admitted that she'd insist on saving the current achievements and reaching new ones; the second stage of the medical reform in Ukraine is supposed to start in summer. The third one will follow in 2020.
