Реформу здравоохранения блокировал парламентский комитет, - Квиташвили

Former health Minister Alexander Kvitashvili said that the healthcare reform in Ukraine the Ministry did not give the parliamentary Committee on health. He said this in an interview with “Today”.

So he answered the question about what work was blocked by the first Deputy Minister Alexander Pavlenko.

“No, these are myths. I’m already tired of talking about it. Were not allowed to work the parliamentary Committee on health. This is the only place where we are unable to find common ground about anything. Just recently the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman verbally repeated what I said over a year: it is necessary to prevent the Ukrainian market drugs that are registered and licensed in the European Union, in the United States, Canada and so on. I’m glad to be the position of Prime Minister. Half of the year we talked about it, but nobody listened. The project, which would allow to do it, was registered in the Verkhovna Rada in December 2014 and was blocked by the Committee. But you know, better late than never. So I’m very glad it passed,” – said Kvitashvili.

According to him, the members of the Committee under your name registered bills of the Ministry of health, which previously rejected themselves.

“The second bill – which was adopted just now (the interview was recorded on April 21, – ed.). They (the Committee members – ed.) there is almost nothing changed. Just re-signed the bills on his behalf. Now it turns out that the head of reforms in Ukraine Oleg Musiy (non-faction people’s Deputy, member of the Committee on health, – ed.). I and I congratulate him. His law will be adopted. The law, which allows autonomy of the networks that they work in a competitive field, to properly funded health care system: funded not for beds and services. These laws are now”, – told ex-the Minister of health.

However, he added that he was “absolutely delighted” that his work “generally gave the result”, and that it was “praises himself to write, then collect the laurels”.
