As at August 6, 2018, every third Ukrainian has signed a declaration with a family doctor, pediatrician or general practitioner. The top-three oblasts with the best results of the ‘A Doctor for Every Family’ campaign include Vinnytsia, Poltava and Kharkiv oblasts: every second resident in these oblasts has already chosen own doctor. This is a great accomplishment and an example of the comprehensive efforts and effective work of both local authorities and doctors. These statistics also prove that most Ukrainians support the ongoing transformation of the healthcare system and are ready for real change.

All primary care physicians shall provide services in full compliance with the Procedure for provision of primary care services (MoH Order No. 504), which defines a clear set of primary care services (the guaranteed benefit package) that will be covered by the state and paid by the National Health Service of Ukraine (NHSU).

The NHSU has the same standard agreements for both private and state-owned PHC providers. Regardless of the form of ownership, all contracted health facilities will provide a clearly defined set of primary care services and operate under the new rules and procedures

The list of all contracted PHC providers is available on the NHSU website (in Ukrainian): http://nszu.gov.ua/index-7.html
