According to the minister, due to the support of international partners, the Ukrainian healthcare sector works smoothly and is provided with the necessary medicines and medical equipment. 

“We are extremely grateful to the Polish government for the help we receive from our partners.

Also during the meeting the ministers discussed the restoration of medical infrastructure that was destroyed by Russian troops. 

The new network of healthcare institutions will be formed taking into account the best international practices in accordance with the principle of hospital districts,” the minister stressed.

In addition, the parties to the dialogue paid attention to further cooperation in the field of medical education and Ukraine's acquisition of EU membership. Following the meeting, it was decided to hold a bilateral forum to finalize the agreements reached.
