Nearly 9 out of 10 businesses say they face corruption when doing business in Ukraine.

An effective, transparent and fair procurement system for some medicines has enabled savings of up to 60%.

One colleague from another town recently asked me: “Say, both our hospitals work with roughly the same budget. Yet yours has better equipment and more medicine. How is it possible?” Our solution is quite obvious. Since we implemented new budget rules, our situation improved considerably. It is a lot of work, as each member of the hospital staff has to abide by many procedures. Each and every one of us has a role to play in enforcing proper budget control. There are also some consultants, experts and local NGOs who come and help us to monitor the use of funds.

It is all worth it. We have seen a clear difference. We may assume there were some margins for abuses and nepotism before. Money is now equally spread between different departments. Money better spent means that we found some extra resources to complete some reconstruction work. Our work relationships also improved as these procedures are clear and transparent. This way we understand each person’s actions. Eventually, our patients are the true beneficiaries.
