While paid “grantees” promote themselves on TV channels and make ridiculous statements protecting the procurement of the Ministry of Health with the participation of international organizations, the number of people who are sick and died of measles is increasing. This was stated by MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC, member of the Parliamentary Committee on Health Tetiana Bakhteieva.
She reported that Ukraine ranks first in the number of measles cases in Europe. Since the beginning of the year, 41,640 people have become ill - 19,271 adults and 22,369 children. Of these, 15 people died from complications.
“While the money of Ukrainian taxpayers is on the accounts of international organizations, Ukrainians get sick and die from measles and other dangerous diseases. All sensible people understand that Ukraine, without exaggeration, is covered by measles,” the MP said.
According to her, presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelensky very correctly remarked, “If there are no quality medicines, if there are no normal prices for medicines, if there are no normal conditions in hospitals, if doctors have no normal salary, what kind of reform is this?”
Pseudo-reform must be eliminated. It is necessary to provide 100% financing of state medical programs and urgently introduce insurance medicine.
The team of the Ministry of Health must be urgently replaced by the Ukrainian one, professional and responsible to the Ukrainian people,” Tetiana Bakhteieva emphasized.
