Ukraine government to fully fund bone marrow transplant.

Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

A respective decision was made at a government meeting on July 15.

"We propose amending the resolution that regulates transplantation in Ukraine. For the first time in Ukraine's history, the amendments to the resolution provide an opportunity to finance all costs of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, taking into account the costs of the receipt of donor material from the World Marrow Donor Association," Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said at the meeting.

The amendments also propose expanding the list of health institutions as potential participants in a pilot transplant project to 12 institutions.
