President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed
the law “On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine” On the State Budget of Ukraine
for 2017”, which among other things, envisages
allocation of additional funds in the amount of UAH 186 million for the state
program “Treatment of Ukrainian citizens abroad”.
After the approval of all necessary documents on allocation of funds by
the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine will
submit amendments to the Passport of the budget program "Treatment of
Ukrainian Citizens Abroad" for consideration. The Ministry of Healthcare
closely cooperates with the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine as well as keeps the
issue on the allocation of additional funding for sending Ukrainian citizens
for treatment abroad under review. After disbursement of funds, there will be
shortly summoned a meeting of the Commission on sending citizens for treatment
abroad. The Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine spares no effort to hold a
meeting of the said Commission and to adopt all key decisions which will enable
people to seize the opportunity of the program for treatment abroad.
