"We believe that the passage of this plan, which defines State guarantees for the financing of insured medical services and medicines through the National Health Service of Ukraine, is a sign that Ukraine is ready and committed to moving forward with its vital reforms, in healthcare and anti-corruption, for the benefit of its citizens," the G7 Ambassadors said in a statement on Tuesday.

"Under the current leadership, much has already been achieved in terms of good governance, as accountability and public oversight has led to increased transparency, though more work still needs to be done," the statement said.
"We therefore respectfully underscore our hope that Dr. Suprun and her team at the Ministry of Health will be enabled to continue their work in reforming healthcare in Ukraine, including through the passage of the abovementioned legislation. The Ministry and all Ukrainian institutions involved have our support in this important endeavor," the G7 Ambassadors said.
