With a 5-month delay, the Cabinet of Ministers has finally adopted a resolution on the use and allocation of funds budgeted from January 1, 2019 for emergency medical care.
This victory was possible due to the representative of Samopomich, Iryna Sysoyenko, who is a real record-holder in the number of appeals and demands to the government and the Prime Minister regarding the financing of emergency medical care.
Iryna notes: “922.5 million hryvnias will soon arrive in Vinnytsia, Donetsk, Odesa, Poltava, Ternopil regions and the city of Kiev for the purchase of specialized ambulances and equipment for emergency medical care system.
But there is still a lot of work ahead, because the amount of funding is insignificant – only 10% of the money needed for the reform. Therefore, Sysoyenko will continue fighting for the increase in the financing of emergency medical care at the expense of the state budget.
She notes: “The most important thing is to ensure that all regions of Ukraine receive money for emergency medical care. I will do everything possible so that the next government thinks more about people and does not selectively provide funding for people’s lives!”
