Specific

  • The purpose of this study was to provide the Population Development Group with evidence that operational policy barriers result in inefficient resource use in reproductive health care in Ukraine and to recommend solutions. The analysis will serve as the foundations for recommendations that the MOH will make to the Cabinet of Ministers on ways to remove the existing operational policy barriers. The specific objectives of this study were to understand, analyze, and recommend solutions to the following problems: -Inefficiencies at the facility level in the areas of staff time use, bed capacity and use, and availability and use of supplies and equipment; -Infelxibility in allocating funds for health care from local budget and financial decision making at the facility level; -The shadow economy in health care from the client perspective (and its relationship to inefficiencies in financial resource allocation); and -Poor quality of care from the client perspective (and its relationship to inefficiencies in health care facilities).
