After the reform, Ukrainian healthcare market will adhere to the doctrines of “patients equal money”, “free choice of doctors”, “accessible and comprehensive medical treatment” and “higher efficiency”. We’ll see how those precepts are going to work in the new environment.
It’s no secret that Ukraine consumes from 3 to 3.5 times as much energy per 1$ GDP as the European Union. This means that under normal circumstances our economy can’t compete in open markets. That is why encouragement of energy efficiency has been top priority for the Ukrainian government these last two years.
For the past two years Ukrainian healthcare has been getting increasingly attractive for investment due to the healthcare reform. However, since the reform is yet legislatively unfulfilled, investors from Turkey, Israel, Georgia, United States and other countries are still on the fence, preferring to observe the market for the time being.
