Ukraine’s health sector reform efforts, initiated six years ago, are dynamic and in a state of constant flux – changes in political leadership, paired with systemic overhauls in health system governance and financing and the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic present the country with unique challenges and opportunities.
The eHealth system is a critical component of Ukraine’s health sector reform. While the system itself is still under development, there are significant challenges in eHealth governance including: policy and strategy development; integration of change management; health sector stakeholder engagement; and effective use of the datasets that are now available to government actors to improve decision-making.
In this fireside chat, Viktoriia Tymoshevska from the International Renaissance Foundation will moderate a discussion with Yaroslav Kucher from Ukraine’s Ministry of Health, Dmytro Chernysh from the National Health Service of Ukraine, Alexander Kvitashvili from PMCG, and Rita Sembajwe from RTI International about Ukraine’s progress in eHealth, remaining challenges and opportunities, and lessons learned from adapting and implementing eHealth solutions and strategies. English and Ukrainian translations will be available throughout the webinar.
