In 2017 the Government expects to buy and deliver vaccines and medicines in time and through a transparent tender procurement. To do this the Cabinet has allocated an additional 2 billion UAH, said the Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko on January 18.
Before the introduction of ProZorro in 2016 procurement and distribution of drugs took place slowly. Early last year, the Ministry of Health reported that could deliver only about a tenth of drugs to the regions. As of today, the delivery of the drugs purchased in 2015 is almost completed, also the delivery of the medicines bought in 2016 started.
The minister hopes that thanks to the transparent procurement the government will purchase and deliver medicines across regions over one year.
We hope and we will do everything to ensure that this year for the first time in the history of Ukraine procurement via international organizations were held in time, and the delivery was made by the end of the year”, – said Deputy Prime Minister.
