“The first component has already been implemented, namely, a Resource Center has been created, which opened on January 17, 2019,” said Sergii Chernov. - The resource center is the so-called quick help for those who need advice and clarification about medical reform. This is a platform where seminars, trainings, meetings are constantly held.
