Ukraine’s Ministry of Healthcare started the process of purchase of drugs and vaccines through international organizations in 2017. The authority hopes to have the entire order paid off by the end of March – that’s when the government will have the necessary funds allocated. Ulyana Suprun, the acting minister of Healthcare, said this at a press conference in Kyiv on Wednesday.
‘We launched this process, and we’ll be able to get these supplies already this year,’ Suprun said, adding that the medicines ordered in 2016 are now being delivered across the country.
Previously, the acting healthcare minister reported that the government would increase funding for the cancer-stricken patients, including minors.
