MPU becomes the only centralized procurement agency in the field of health care

From 2023, international organizations will not purchase medicines and medical products. Medical procurement of Ukraine becomes the only centralized procurement agency in the field of health care in Ukraine.

Still they have to supply the goods that were purchased earlier. In particular, we expect deliveries of vaccines, medical products for transplantation, treatment of epidermolysis bullosa, etc. 

"Since 2015, as part of the health care system reform, centralized procurement of medical goods has been transferred to international procurement organizations. This was a temporary solution until Ukraine created a national agency capable of combating widespread corruption in public medical procurement," says Edem Adamanov, acting general manager of the MPU.

According to him, MPU starting from 2020, MPU purchased via the funds of the state budget: "During this time, we managed to save more than UAH 5 billion. Therefore, taking into account the positive experience of the MPU, it was decided to transfer all centralized procurement to our institution". 

In addition, part of the medical products that the MPU previously purchased centrally will be transferred for reimbursement in 2023. These are medicines for patients in the pre- and post-transplantation period and consumables for determining blood glucose.

Instead, medical goods to meet public health needs will be purchased by international partners who want to support Ukraine in this way. We are talking about antiretroviral therapy, supportive replacement therapy, medicines for the treatment of tuberculosis, test systems for diagnosing HIV and tuberculosis.

Аs of January 23 in 2023 MPU will purchase via 23 areas:
