The Government of Ukraine is in urgent need to secure the availability of the State Programme medicines and essential health commodities at affordable prices and in sufficient quantities. Acknowledging the challenges of the State procurement and supply management system and following recently adopted legislation, allowing the selected international organizations to provide procurement support services, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine (MOH) has requested the UN to support the procurement and distribution of a number of 2015 State Programme medicines and other medical products as an emergency measure.

UNDP in Ukraine is fully committed to play this role in resolving the immediate crisis and to support the Ministry of Health of Ukraine in its mid- and long-term efforts to reform its procurement and supply management system. UNDP brings its extensive expertise in establishing the procurement system that corresponds to the highest standards of transparency, accountability, cost-efficiency, equity and sustainability.

UNDP together with other UN Agencies (UNICEF and WHO) developed a Joint Project aimed at strengthening the national health care procurement system and thereby improving the effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment of the patients of Ukraine. Specifically, in the framework of the project, UNDP plans to (i) procure medicines and medical products for the National Public Health Programmes for 2015 and ongoing years as needed, (ii) strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health to ensure transparency, accountability and effectiveness of the public procurement of medicines and other medical products.

The MOH of Ukraine established the Working Group (WG) on provision and coordination of public procurement through specialized organizations. The main goal of the WG is to provide professional assistance and coordination on planning and conducting public health procurement through international organizations (UNICEF, UNDP and Crown Agents). The established WG, which meets on a regular basis, but is not a permanent body, is in need of full-time administrative support in order to carry out its functions, and to make it possible to carry out its intensive work, arrange meetings and perform coordination tasks. This is expected to be done through established Secretariat of the mentioned WG, other relevant multi-sectorial groups and appointed and responsible staff of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

The Lawyer is expected to work up to 6 months (with possible extension) and the MOH will be responsible for all administrative arrangements, work-progress reporting and monitoring of the Secretariat experts’ performance.
