Ukraine marks the Day of Medical Worker on Sunday, June 18.
Former Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk issued a decree in 1994 at the initiative of healthcare workers, by which he established the professional holiday for healthcare providers. It is traditionally marked on the third Sunday in June.
The same holiday is celebrated the same day in Belarus and Russia.
Ukrainian President and Prime Minister have already congratulated Ukrainian heath workers on the occasion of professional holiday.
Groysman also noted that medical reform is one of the priorities for the country.
"Our government does everything to provide decent working conditions and remuneration," he stressed.
