Iryna Vereshchuk, Vice Prime Minister, led a meeting on this issue.

We are discussing relocating medical facilities from Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions. Managing financing and retaining staff potential can be a complicated process.

They discussed finalizing a draft government resolution for implementing the program of state medical care guarantees for the population in 2024.

Representatives of the regional military administrations should review this document and propose improvements to the process of financing medical institutions, including relocated ones.

The meeting participants agreed that supporting displaced institutions in adapting to new conditions is crucial to providing quality medical care to the population.

This statement should consider the unique characteristics of each region and institution, ensuring they utilize their capacities optimally.

“We need to take care of the hospitals that continue to operate even under such difficult conditions. To do this, we need a clear and effective policy. It should guarantee uninterrupted and high-quality medical care for citizens, taking into account the uniqueness of each region,” the Vice Prime Minister concluded.
