USAID, in cooperation with the authorities and civil society organizations of Ukraine, other international institutions and partners, promotes the overall development of Ukraine’s health care system.
It is a contribution to building a system that serves the needs of the Ukrainian citizens and ensures physicians with the necessary tools, knowledge and resources to provide modern, high-quality medical services to all Ukrainians.
USAID project “Safe, Affordable, and Effective Medicines for Ukrainians” (SAFEMed) helps to improve the pharmaceutical system in Ukraine. The SAFEMed project is a comprehensive system of financing and management of pharmaceutical services, as well as optimization of production lanes. It promotes modern technical solutions, and reduces the level of corruption in the spheres of financing pharmaceuticals and state purchases of pharmaceutical products, as well as makes it impossible for the mechanism of post-processing to be effective.
SAFEMed project contributes to the decentralization and integration of medical services on the national and sub-national level in different areas. Another goal is to ensure a stable supply of core medicines and medical devices for fair market prices.
Every year Ukraine allocates money for purchasing medicines, which are important for certain categories of patients. However, both public authorities and patients themselves are not always informed about the availability of medicines, which can be obtained free of charge from the medical institutions in which they are hospitalized.
It is planned to create a national system “Information system of accounting of medicines and medical devices in Ukraine.” It aims to:
Ensure continuous availability of appropriate medicines at all levels;
Reduce storage deficiencies and excess storage, and, thus, minimize losses;
Make rational decisions regarding provision of services, distribution of the budget, the competence of service providers, institutional capacity and other parameters;
Improve cost efficiency and increase patient satisfaction.
