The Government should ensure maximum transparency in all spheres of life, including health care, as well as its own activities. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this during Government’s Question Time in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Friday.

"I am convinced that we have to create a complete transparency, including in health issues. We are ready and open up to those proposals that can resolve the problem," said Volodymyr Groysman answering a question as to providing patients with renal failure.

In this context, in particular, it is necessary to resolve the issue of drug prices, noted the Prime Minister. "There should be no monopoly when it comes to the health of people," underlined the Prime Minister, adding that the Government has to solve this issue.

"If the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine can adopt decisions able to affect the lowering of drug prices, we will approve them," assured Volodymyr Groysman, noting that the Government would look for the support from the Ukrainian Parliament in the adoption of legislative initiatives. "I believe in it because this Parliament often takes the right decisions that benefit the Ukrainians," noted Volodymyr Groysman.

In turn, the Government and Ministers should also be as open and transparent as possible. "This Government will make every effort to be open, efficient and sincere in its actions toward Ukrainian society," said the Prime Minister and urged MPs to support the Government in these endeavors.
