Drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis will be delivered from the regional level to patients!

The State Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko said that drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis will be delivered from the regional level to patients. This is the first time that such a public-private partnership approach has been implemented under the Safe, Affordable and Effective Medicines for Ukrainians (SAFEMed) project.

Why is this important? Drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and hepatitis, which are purchased at public expense, are now delivered from national warehouses only to the level of regional centers.

As there is currently no single system for delivering drugs to district-level facilities, medicines often reach patients with delays due to logistics. That is why a dialogue and a search for a solution to the issue was launched.

The result that has been achieved is extremely important. This is not just a short-term promotion. The implementation of the project will help solve this problem in the long run. The results of the pilot project will be used to calculate logistics services in order to develop models for further inclusion of such services in centralized budgets and health care packages under the health guarantee program.

In the near future, the SAFEMed project (Management sciences for Health) together with the regional health departments will develop routes for the delivery of necessary drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis from regional warehouses to the level of final recipients.

After that, on a monthly basis, at the expense of the project funds will be provided transportation of drugs in compliance with all necessary standards and temperature requirements.
