The Ministry of Health of Ukraine is not in conflict with the public enterprise “Medical Procurement of Ukraine” (MZU).
This was announced by the Minister of Health of Ukraine Maxim Stepanov in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
“How can the Ministry of Health have a conflict with the company of which it is the governing body? MZU is an ordinary enterprise, not a production enterprise, with complex processes which only have to do shopping and fulfill his duties. When I got to this post, I had a meeting with “The first document from the Department of Health, which he brought and said it needs to be approved urgently , its staff with a fairly good salary, in any case, is almost several times higher than that of the Minister of Health. But I take it calmly, “said Stepanov.
He noted that the documents for obtaining the status of central procurement body by the public enterprise MZU are preparing the Ministry of the Economy. According to him, the Ministry of Health has submitted all the documents necessary for the Ministry of Health to benefit from such status. “I don’t understand why this was not done in 2018-2019. I think this problem will be solved fairly quickly. I have experience in building systems, including the organization of the work of companies “, added Stepanov.
