TO: Yu. V. Tymoshenko, Leader of the Political Party “Batkivschyna”,

People’s Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

Public Message

 

Dear Yulia Volodymyrivna,

Yesterday, at the Coordination Board meeting you disseminated false information about government procurement of medicines through the international organizations.

We, as representatives of the patients’ community assure you that delegation of the procurement of medicines, vaccines and medical supplies through the international specialized organizations is one of the most effective anti-corruption reforms in the health sector proved by years of work.

For the first time funds for the public procurement are not plundered, but saved. According to the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine, international organizations save up to 39% of the funds allocated for procurement of medicines. These are direct savings that allow providing treatment to more patients. Some medicines are procured at a price 67 times lower than during the MOH procurement in 2015. The saved funds permitted to procure up to 70% of additional medicines for some programs. Over 60% of medicines are procured by the international organizations directly from manufacturers as compared to small percent of manufacturers participating in the MoH tenders before implementation of this anti-corruption reform.

The tenders on the ground show the effectiveness of international procurement as opposed to the PROZZORO system. Today the regional oncology centers and state institutions procure medicines at prices up to 300% higher than through the international organizations (evidence from monitoring of procurement of medicines for oncology patients conducted by the Anti Corruption Action Center).

Deliveries of medicines for the funds of 2015-2016 are completed according to the plan. What you call ‘medicines short delivered for these years’ is only 0.007% of the deliveries of the 2015 contract amount. Now these medicines are being delivered at the cost of funds saved by the international organizations. Similar situation is with deliveries for 2016 procurement budget: the supply of medicines procured additionally for the saved funds is now being completed.

In 2018, the procurement cycle has been finally straightened out. Agreements with international organizations were signed in April and the first tenders have already been completed.

Julia Volodymirovna, public procurement reform is the achievement valued by thousands of saved lives. Discrediting and deprecating it means denying the problems of patients and using peoples’ grief for sensational populist slogans.

We call you, dear Yulia Volodymyrivna, as the leader of the faction, not to voice unverified information and not to mislead voters and people’s deputies. The truth is that the pharmaceutical procurement reform is really supported by the patients’ community and saves our lives!
