We work to strengthen the governance and management of Ukraine’s pharmaceutical systems to enhance transparency and advance policies that improve the availability of quality-assured medicines, including those required for an effective HIV and AIDS and TB response.
Using Health Technology for Health Care Solutions
Under USAID’s Safe, Affordable, and Effective Medicines (SAFEMed) for Ukrainians Activity, we helped launch the country’s first health technology assessment unit, which makes health care recommendations to the Ministry of Health based on safety, clinical efficacy, and cost. It helps guide choices on which medicines will be part of Ukraine’s publicly financed benefits package, ultimately granting access to high-quality drugs while saving Ukrainians some $28 million annually.
Our work in Ukraine aims to bolster pharmaceutical governance and financing, contribute to a longer-term plan for pharmaceutical financing, and strengthen rational pharmaceutical management and the pharmaceutical supply chain, ultimately leading to better availability and use of essential medicines, particularly for those living with TB, HIV and AIDS, and noncommunicable diseases.
