"We have taken a Western transparent system and implemented it in Ukraine. We are aware of the problematic issues and are working [to eliminate them]. We have allocated additional UAH 250 million so it [the program’s budget] will have UAH 750 million. We do not stop. It is necessary to expand the list of medicines under the reimbursement program as this system is the most transparent one," the Head of Government said.
