In the near future, a mobile pharmacy will operate in the Mykolaiv region, and the possibility of launching mobile pharmacies in the Sumy and Chernihiv regions is also being explored.

Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko said this at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

«In the near future, a mobile pharmacy will be launched in the Mykolaiv region. Now in the Sumy and Chernihiv regions we are working on a route where a mobile pharmacy can travel. And there, in collaboration with international technical assistance projects, we plan to launch such a mobile pharmacy until some enterprise picks it up. But our task is to cover the whole of Ukraine with completely mobile pharmacy points, so that every village has access to the Affordable Medicines program,” Lyashko said. Now, according to him, in the Kharkov region the route of a mobile pharmacy already includes 111 settlements, in the Cherkasy region – 734 settlements.

Mobile pharmacy stations dispense both over-the-counter and prescription medicines, including including under the “Affordable Medicines” program by electronic prescription.

As Ukrinform reported, the pilot project “Ukrposhta. Pharmacy” will begin its work in the de-occupied and front-line territories of Donbass and in certain border areas of the Sumy region.
