Today, the Chairman of Kharkiv Regional Council Artur Tovmasian opened an advocacy campaign with community leaders, experts and chief doctors of medical institutions of Kharkiv region within the framework of the project "Effective primary medicine in society". The purpose of the event is to exchange experience and develop best practices.

The event was also attended by the Deputy Chairman of Kharkiv Regional Council Tetiana Bilovol, the Coordinator of the Kharkiv expert group for support of medical reform, honorary consul of Germany in Kharkiv Tetiana Havrysh.

During the advocacy campaign, experts shared with the participants of the event domestic and international experience on how a community can influence the preservation of the health of its residents, how to organize effective management of the network of medical institutions in communities, and how to choose the best models for organizing medical care.

"I believe that we should use information from experienced experts so that residents in all corners of Slobozhanshchyna have the opportunity to receive affordable, high-quality and timely medical services. The Kharkiv Regional Council pays great attention to this issue. I am sure that information and explanatory work is of leading importance, especially in the context of decentralization and changes in the principles of territorial organization of power, when there is a transfer of medical institutions from the district level to the subordination of communities. At the same time, the pandemic is still the determining factor," Artur Tovmasian said.

The event was held within the framework of the project "Effective primary medicine in society" and opens a number of similar meetings throughout the region.

For reference. The project "Effective primary medicine in society" is implemented within the framework of the EU program "Support for civil society, local authorities and Human Rights in Ukraine" and is funded by the European Union and has been implemented in Kharkiv region since September 2018. During this time, dozens of professional medical trainings for doctors, job fairs, educational companies were held, new medical equipment was purchased for primary care centers, and medical institutions were repaired.
