Today Ukraine is ready for profound health care system reforms. Making health care services effective and affordable to everyone will ensure that the Ukrainian healthcare system will meet world-class standards of medical care.

On November 17, 2014, Maryna Antonova, Head of the Board of Ukraine 3000, spoke at the conference “Healthcare Reforms in Ukraine” organized by the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine, the USAID, the Ministry of Healthcare and the World Bank Office in Ukraine. The conference participants discussed the ways to foster the development and improvement of the healthcare sector in our country.

Along with Mick Mullay, Public Private Partnership Development Program COP, Maryna Antonova delivered a presentation at the “PPP in Ukraine: experience, opportunities and challenges for healthcare sector” conference session.

Maryna Antonova presented the NOVO Medical Center in Lviv, the new healthcare facility operating in a PPP format. Based within the Municipal Children’s Hospital, the center established a public private partnership with this institution. Public-private partnerships are long-term contracts between public sector entities, such as municipalities, regional or national governments, and private sector companies for the provision of public services and improvement of infrastructure. Public private partnerships can become an effective tool to address the numerous concerns of Ukrainian healthcare system, such as out of date equipment, inadequate medical supplies and others. The new healthcare PPP in Lviv could pave the way for similar projects elsewhere in Ukraine, thus ensuring the improvement of medical services across the country.

Maryna Antonova provided insight into the project implementation. She spoke about the center’s cutting-edge equipment, including an MRI system, CT scanner and ultrasound devices. 
Maryna Antonova then explained how the center works as a PPP unit. In addition, the center became one of the first healthcare facilities in Ukraine to work as a charity.

„The establishment of the Center brought enormous benefits to the Lviv Municipal Children’s Hospital, particularly bringing in better care in neurosurgery. It also functions as training and   consulting facility. Just recently, the center hosted its first event, the seminar on healthcare PPPs in Ukraine. And in the future hopefully the center’s capacities and top quality diagnostic services will enable to establish a maternity hospital, a center for perinatal care and a center for first minute surgery”.

For further improvements at the new healthcare facility, Ukraine 3000 is looking for partners and funds to procure a mammography unit, an X-ray apparatus, an endoscopy and colonoscopy technologies.

World Giving Index 2014 Ukraine on place 103
The data we have here clearly does not represent the engagement of Ukrainians in charitable giving, comments Oleksandr Maksymchuk, President of the Association of Charities of Ukraine. Given the present situation in the country, Ukraine experiences an unusual positive growth in the charitable sector. For Ukrainians the engagement across all types of giving is now a commonplace activity. The Revolution of Dignity changed our society completely as both citizens and businesses throughout the country demonstrate high levels of social responsibility. The pro-European rallies united Ukrainians and manifested the importance of mutual help and support. Today we do everything in our power to help the soldiers who are defending our sovereignty in the east. And we are confident that in the future the generosity of our people will only grow stronger. »»
