At the initiative of the NGO “From Heart to Heart”, a working meeting was held with the heads of regional state structures and utilities in Cherkasy Oblast State Administration. During the meeting, the mechanism for the procurement of services at NGOs for the state budget was discussed through health care institutions and social protection of the population.

Natalia Nesvat, Chairman of the Board, “From Heart to Heart,” spoke about the successful experience of Poltava, where such a mechanism was introduced this year. Such cooperation between municipalities and non-governmental organizations enables representatives of risk groups to receive professional, high-quality and permanent services, including HIV/AIDS prevention, and TB.

The result of the meeting was the elaboration of constructive proposals from the heads of medical institutions and health care management regarding the range of necessary social services and the study of the legislative capacity of such funding and the development of any interaction.
