The audit of the Accounting Chamber has found significant irregularities in the Ministry of Health when using funds from the State Budget of Ukraine in the process of implementing the “Affordable Drugs” program in 2017-2018, for which UAH 1.7 billion was spent. This was stated by MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Tetiana Bakhteieva.
“According to the conclusions of the Accounting Chamber: the Cabinet of Ministers, the Ministry of Health and State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection have not provided adequate control over the pricing of drugs, leading to inefficient use of budget funds. The risks of inefficient use of budget funds during the implementation of the “Affordable Drugs” program in Ukraine as a whole can reach UAH 154.7 million,” the politician noted.
According to her, the mismanagement of the Ministry of Health has led to millions of budget losses and criminal cases. “The international procurement program of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine sends the money of Ukrainian taxpayers to the pockets of international pharmaceutical mafia. Such a “work” of the Ministry of Health has damaged the economy of Ukraine and the health of Ukrainians! All over the world, the issues of people’s health and life are a matter of national security!
The team of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine must immediately stop the genocide of Ukrainians, and the team of the Ministry of Health must urgently be replaced with a Ukrainian one, professional and responsible to the Ukrainian people,” Tetiana Bakhteieva emphasized.
