“The medical community refers to the Ministry of health and directly to the government and the Prime Minister of the country Vladimir Groysman on the inadmissibility of similar situations that happened in the national system of health,” he said. Country said that we are talking about the failure of drug procurement by the Ministry of health. “The purchase of 2015 was carried out up to the end of 2016. And at the end of the past has just begun a procurement programme that was financed during the year”, – he stressed .
The head of the Federation noted that as a result of the destructive policy of the Ministry of health, the field of cardiology, which has always been at a high level in the country was in a deplorable condition. “Ukrainian cardiologists put in such conditions that, of the ten patients, the doctor must choose whom to provide real help,” he said. Country recalled that the Ministry of health in 2016 also failed to purchase drugs for cancer patients buying only 10%, but said at the same time about one hundred percent security.
The head of the Federation also stressed that the Ministry is hiding from the public with objective information on the amounts, number and type of drugs purchased. According to him, the attempts of the medical community to obtain this information were not successful.

In particular, he was referring to the state program on cardiovascular diseases, which include the purchase of 364 million hryvnia (about $13.4 million at current exchange rates) supplies of first necessity, which could save tens of thousands of lives, but procurement was not conducted by the Ministry of health.
“You have not had this purchase. I absolutely responsibly declare and can repeat it in court that your negligence claimed more lives of Ukrainians than war in recent years,” wrote Todorov on his page in Facebook.
In response to the statement Todurov MOZ reported that purchases of heart disease medications through international organizations. The Ukrainian experts in the field of medicine noted that international procurement was not justified.
“The involvement of international organizations, which had caused the despair of all on the transparency and timeliness of procurement of drugs, showed that they are not able to work within the framework of the Ukrainian legislation,” – said the head of the Federation of employers of health of the Vladimir Countryside.
