The child healthcare system in Ukraine is coordinated and managed at a central level by the Ministry of Health and at a local level by the regional health authorities. The Ministry of Health has executive the power for the implementation of state health policies and controls and manages state-owned health facilities. The system of public funding for the pediatric healthcare system is divided into two sources: central and local. Primary healthcare is organized by the National Health Service of Ukraine. Secondary level healthcare is mostly organized by the Ministry of Health, which gives money for hospitals and medical centers. Since 2014, due to reform and decentralization in Ukraine, local, regional, and city administrations received money from the Ukrainian government for the formation of decentralized budgets.
