Ukraine might reach the transplantation independence in two-three years as the Health Ministry reported citing Minister Maksym Stepanov.

“The goal of the ministry is to reach the transplantation independence in two-three years to provide the citizens of Ukraine with the necessary medical aid and not to force them to wait in line,” Stepanov noted.

He specified that transplantation in Ukraine is much cheaper than abroad.

According to Stepanov, the Health Ministry of Ukraine developed a gradual plan with clear criteria.

“It does not mean that the result will be only in two years. The significant changes will take place in the first months and each six months,” the minister added.

As we reported, surgeons of Kyiv-based Institute named after Oleksandr Shalimov have successfully conducted three operations, transplanting body organs from a dead donor.

The transplantation from a dead donor is legal in Ukraine. Yet, the imperfect legislature is something that still prevents the medics from the regular and frequent performance of such surgeries. Besides, civil society shows different points of view in this regard.

Besides, the city clinical emergency hospital in Lviv conducted heart transplantation for the first time. This is the first such operation in Lviv and the third in Ukraine in the past 15 years.
