The Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko announces that the Gov’t will finance stage by stage completion of all-Ukrainian Centre of Radiosurgery on the basis of Feofania clinical hospital. She informed in the course of her visit of the construction site of the Centre.

“Taking into account the fact that UAH 60 million out of the needed UAH 135 million is the sum planned for purchase of equipment, and it can wait a bit as there is enough equipment to launch this Centre, I think on the first stage UAH 70 million is enough for now,” Yulia Tymoshenko opined.

The Prime Minister reminded that the Gov’t would also allocate UAH 70 million for completion of a new department of the Kyiv oncologic centre. “We will do our best so that by the end of year both of the centres could start operation. And it means people will have chance to reveal oncologic diseases on early stages”. At this, Yulia Tymoshenko imparted the Government had set a task to finance creation of similar oncologic centres in every region of Ukraine.

The Premier underlined that access to services of the all-Ukrainian Centre of Radiosurgery will be gained by every citizen who needs treatment. “At this, people not having chance to pay for these technologies will be examined and cured 100% at the account of state funds if the disease is diagnosed on the early stage”. According to Yulia Tymoshenko, cancer on its early stage will be diagnosed with the help of an up-to-date tomograph in the all-Ukrainian Centre of Radiosurgery.

Moreover, Yulia Tymoshenko drew attention to the facts and informed that annually 160 thousand persons get cancer in Ukraine, with almost 40% of people of working age. “If the disease is diagnosed on early stage, 90% of people with cancer can be cured,” the Premier stressed.
