As the government restarts its paused reform programme, a PPP solution is being touted. Private provision in the country is funded mostly out of pocket and the country’s NHS tariffs are too low for private providers to play a big role, especially as co-pay models are not yet accepted.

He tells us: “We think there is no way to rebuild Ukraine as a country without a robust healthcare system, and there is no way to rebuild a robust healthcare system by just strictly rebuilding the government-operated healthcare system.”
