The Procurement Support Services to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine Project, Phase II (the Project) is one of the elements of the UNDP Health & Transparency Programme. The Project goals are aligned with the national priorities of the Ukrainian healthcare reform agenda and aim to strengthen the national healthcare system and thus improve the effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment of patients in Ukraine. Within the scope of the Project, UNDP supports the operational performance of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine (MoH) by providing cost-effective and timely medical procurement services in compliance with UNDP’s rules, policies and procedures. In the long term UNDP aims to help the MoH to grow its professional capacity and procurement expertise. Ultimately, a system of effective supply chain management, properly trained personnel and efficient management processes conforming to international standards, alongside the principles of integrity, transparency, accountability and quality, to enable it to meet the healthcare needs of all Ukrainians should be established.
The procurement of medicines and medical devices by international agencies was initially legally mandated until the end of March 2019 and then prolonged first until March 2020 and eventually until March 2023. To strengthen the technical support to the MoH PSS Project as well as shape the future vision of its work in the area of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, UNDP seeks to hire a Pharmacist/Pharmaceutical Specialist to support the implementation of the Project.
Under the direct supervision of the Senior Procurement Specialist, with cross-functional coordination by Programme Manager (Health), the Pharmacist/Pharmaceutical Specialist will provide advice on pharmaceutical requirements, standards, rules and regulations for ensuring effective procurement of quality assured drugs and commodities through UNDP Ukraine.
