As reported by Censor.NET citing the official website of Ukraine's Health Ministry, this data was disclosed in financial explanation of the draft law on government-funded healthcare and medicines, which was submitted to the Verkhovna Rada.
According to the Deputy Health Minister Pavlo Kovtoniuk, the estimates suggest that a healthcare worker (a doctor, a nurse) providing medical service for 2000 patients will receive an average monthly income of 35,000 hryvnia (about $1,300) based on the current minimum funding of primary healthcare.
The estimates of the related expenses stipulated by the industry requirements for the primary medical care show that the largest amount spend by such a healthcare worker for diagnostic tests, medical consumables and equipment depreciation will be at 9,081 hryvnia per month. Thus, the amount of funds remaining for wages and other current expenses is expected to average 25,919 hryvnia (about $960) per month.
According to the Health Ministry, this amount may be increased if amendments are introduced to the state budget-2017.
