In Ukraine will create a sample of EU health and epidemiological service – Stepanov
In Ukraine, there are plans to create a European level health and epidemiological service, but it will not be the central executive authority.
This was announced on the ZIK television channel by the Minister of Health Maxim Stepanov, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“There should be a service in the country capable of responding to the challenges we have seen with coronavirus disease. We have Viktor Lyashko, the chief health official appointed by the government decision of March 11. Indeed, today there is no service in its own right, that is to say the allocation of different responsibilities to different units, including the Ministry of Health. We do not plan to do this as a central executive body, but we do plan to create a service which will comply with European standards, “said Stepanov.

He added that such a service would be able to respond and that there would be “no Soviet rudiment concerning the elements of corruption and other complaints which would have been addressed to this service when it existed”.
As indicated, the Cabinet of Ministers liquidated in March 2017 the State Health and Epidemiological Service, explaining in particular that its functions were already exercised by the Ministry of Health, the State Labor Service and the National Service food and drink.
