As we reported earlier, Health Minister Maksym Stepanov believes that the funding of the medical branch in Ukraine's 2021 state budget is currently insufficient. 

"Yesterday, the state budget for 2021 was approved. Our offers that the Ministry had filed, proceeding from their accounts were not taken into consideration. Yes, we see an increase in the total amount of costs to fund the medical branch, but the increase does not mean it is enough to support the work of our healthcare system," noted the official.
