Yurii KOTSULIVSKYI

[ region ]

Vinnytsia

Head of the Maternity Department at the Vinnytsia Rayon Hospital, Vinnytsia

Good Health and Well-being

The risk associated with pregnancy is 6 times higher in Ukraine than in Switzerland.

Switzerland’s engagement to improving maternal and child health helped to prevent 1 out of 3 deaths of women in pregnancy and childbirth.

This is the only modern gynaecological department in the district. To put things into perspective, we deal with about 80,000 inhabitants and all consultations take place here. Patients may rest afterwards on one of the beds in the next room. Only the medical staff are allowed in here. We have done it all so that women don’t have to worry for even a second. We have worked on this approach over the years. Thanks to continuous training, we have understood the logic of Swiss methods and we have implemented them here. It is for sure a big improvement compared to the former system we had… Patients used to have to wait in the corridor. Consultations were not really pleasant and women were reluctant to trust doctors.

Thanks to our improvements, the psychological impact and care for women, namely for pregnant women, is fundamentally different. Now we can tackle any kind of issue here, from hygiene to contraception. All consultations are confidential. The staff are here to help rather than to lecture patients, as it used to be the case. Moreover we work in optimal conditions after we renovated our offices according to best Swiss standards. We still have some issues to resolve but who doesn’t? Step by step though, we are working on building trust with our patients.
