The press release issued by the President of Ukraine on 11 February 2022.

During his working trip to the Kharkiv region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a meeting of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, during which they discussed issues of improving the quality of medical services and ensuring decent wages of medical workers.

The Head of State stressed that a strong Ukraine is a strong medicine.

“Right now we are talking about raising the salaries of our doctors and paramedics. In every institution, even the smallest, most remote, without exception,” he said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy reminded that last year, in accordance with the President’s decree, the budget for the healthcare sector and the Medical Guarantee Program was increased. And then local authorities and heads of medical institutions should act.

The Head of State also set a task to improve the quality of medical services, which would be aimed not only at stabilizing the condition, but also at maximizing the restoration of the human body.

“This is medicine, an integral part of which is rehabilitation from the first day of illness or injury. 24 rehabilitation centers have been identified, which the state will equip in each region of our state in a priority manner in the framework of the Large Construction,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.
