Kyiv, 12 June 2020 – All of the medicines procured on behalf of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine for the budget year 2019 will be delivered in 2020 according to the schedule agreed to with the Health Ministry in 2019, the United Nations Development Programme has confirmed.
UNDP’s Resident Representative in Ukraine Dafina Gercheva said UNDP will be able to procure all the medicines the ministry requested in 2019 and deliver the purchases by the end of 2020. “We greatly value our partnership with the ministry, and the ministry’s dedication to the swift implementation of the health reform, which will ensure that every patient has access to the medicines they need, and no one is left behind.”
UNDP has been procuring medicines on behalf of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine since 2015. The ultimate objective of the strategic partnership between UNDP and the Ministry of Health is to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry and the state-owned enterprise Medical Procurement of Ukraine for effective, efficient and transparent procurement of medicines and medical devices, and gradually hand-over this function to the respective national entity.
The high requirements and standards that UNDP establishes for tenders ensures the medicines procured are of highest quality and effectiveness, as unscrupulous producers are screened out of the procurement process.
