PUBLIC MONITORING OF THE DELIVERY AND USE OF MEDICINES AT THE LOCAL LEVEL: CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Within the framework of the Project ‘Procurement Support Services to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine’ UNDP provides support to the electronic system for monitoring the availability of medical supplies at medical institutions "E Liky", which was launched in 2016.
About 20 regions of Ukraine are already providing information to the resource eliky.in.ua on medicines available to patients in hospitals. The platform " E Liky” became an innovative approach to protecting the rights of citizens for quality medical care. Now patients can receive information about what drugs that are purchased at the budget cost and are available in the hospital.
To understand whether the life-saving medicines procured for the state budget reached the respective patients, the project plans to provide grants to regional non-governmental organizations to monitor supply and distribution of drugs procured with support of UNDP at the central level. UNDP will grant only one organization per region.
