Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman

The Prime Minister assured that the introduction of medical reform, Ukrainians will live longer.

Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said on air of the TSN that Ukraine was late for 26 years with the establishment of a quality health system.

“Across the country, not a perfect system, 97% of people pay for medicine and get enough low quality, and doctors are forced to find outside income. This is unacceptable, and the law which we have adopted, allows you to change the funding system. Now Finance we will not the walls of hospitals and not an empty bed. We will Fund a particular medical service”, − said Groisman.

Premier believes that to feel the first success of health reform, Ukrainians will be able in a few years.

“I think that fundamentally, in a few years we will be able to see the first successes,” he said.

Groysman stressed that despite the predictions of skeptics, the reform will be effective.

“We will pay 100% for medical services. Do not have anything to withdraw. It’s completely fine. We eventually all did what we had to do 26 years ago. Now we are going to implement it, and people will feel change. I’m just warning you: they will not be quick”, − concluded the head of government.

Recall, the Verkhovna Rada in the second reading supported the draft law “On state financial guarantees for providing medical services and medicines.”
