About this on his page in Facebook said the head of the expert analytical Council of the Ukrainian analytical center Boris Kushniruk.
“I am far from thinking that all the achievements of the team Suprun was flawless. Read and spread on FB page articles of medical professionals, which explained what and how we need to change and improve it. It is obvious that such complex and long-term reform impossible to write perfectly the first time. They require constant adjustments and refinements. But someone has to do it” — said Kushniruk.
About the need for clarifications and changes in the second stage of the reform, said the appointment of Minister of the Ministry of health and Mr. Stepanov, the expert reminds.
“But despite the fact that he has been in office for almost three months, it, too, so no one was able to get any concrete proposals for change the second phase of health reform. Attempts of the profile Committee of the Verkhovna Rada to obtain from him any explanations never finished. It just does not go there. To a certain extent understandable. The person who actually totally incompetent, just has nothing to offer MPs and society”, — said Kushniruk.
He noted that under a new Memorandum of cooperation with the IMF under which Ukraine will receive a new financial program, is the signature of the Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, head of the national Bank and the President. In this Memorandum, the Ukrainian government explicitly recognizes the obligation to continue its medical reform.
“Healthcare reform requires professional management and freedom to implement it. Unfortunately, neither the first nor the second the current government can not offer”, — stressed the Chairman of the expert analytical Council of the Ukrainian analytical center.
Earlier that health Minister Maxim Stepanov avoids meeting with people’s deputies, said political analyst Kirill Sazonov: “For three months Stepanov said that edreform is wrong, but how did not say. Moreover, he still had not submitted to the Committee on health even a rough concept of his vision of reform. And the deputies were waiting for him for weeks and really want to talk.”
