Ukraine’s health care system falling to decay, Acting Health Minister Suprun says

The acting health minister of Ukraine says the country's health care system is in tatters.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Liga, Acting Minister of Health Ulana Suprun said in an interview with Fokus magazine.

"Ukrainian health care system is in tatters. Reform is like renovation of an already built house. Our imaginary house does not operate properly as it has no foundation, no roof, its windows are shattered while no one lives in it. It is better to build a new foundation and then a new house instead of repairing the old one," Suprun said.

Acting health minister believes that a change in the concept of health care funding will provide a new foundation.

"We will use this foundation to build the system capable of providing a guaranteed package of high-quality health services. They will be free of charge and accessible to all," Suprun said.
