48 pp. 2.0 MB
This report contains three parts. At the beginning the authors describe the schemes that existed in the healthcare system in the past, and some new ones that appeared this year. The report also covers other systemic problems that prevent establishment of a transparent public procurement system for pharmaceuticals and promotes corruption in this area. Finally, the report describes the consequences of such schemes and systemic problems that became particularly tangible in 2014 and caused the failure of the public program for procurement of pharmaceuticals. That failure led to the shortage of the most vital medicines in many regions of Ukraine, which will be clearly demonstrated by this report.
