At the session of the Government of Ukraine on Friday, October 24, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk has instructed the Ministry of Health to check availability of drugs in the regions and to take under special control the supply of medicines in the ATO area.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk noted the importance of the working visit of the acting Health Minister Vasyl Lazoryshynets to the zone of the anti-terrorist operation last week, noting that the previous leadership of the Ministry, unfortunately, hadn’t done that.

The Prime Minister commissioned the head of the Ministry of Health together with Medical Service of the Ministry of Defense to exercise a special control over the provision of medical preparations in the area of the anti-terrorist operations.

He also appealed to the heads of regional state administrations to “go directly to hospitals, to meet people and to provide a report on what is the real state of matters, whether people have obtained their medicines".

Arseniy Yatsenyuk instructed the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to ensure operation of the hotline in order to gather information, "how the medications are being delivered directly to the areas, as a result of redistribution and the purchasing of additional amounts".

Next week, he said, the Government in synergy with the Ministry of Health, State Service of Ukraine on Medical Products and the Ministry of Economy is to address an issue of prices for drugs and medical purpose goods.
