Crimea establishes efficient emergency medical assistance system

Autonomous Republic of Crimea is performing systematic work to improve quality and accessibility of medical aid. Right now, the peninsula completed the structure of family medicine, has been introducing new perinatal technologies and reforming a system of emergency medical aid, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.
One of basic achievements in health sector of Crimea includes completion of a uniform system for emergency medical response. 7 round the clock ambulance stations (including 37 substations and 42 permanent posts of medical teams) ensure faster response.
Also, last year, 30 ambulance vehicles (Type B) were purchased at cost of state budget and ARC development budget. In 2014, the plan is to supplement the pool with 60 vehicles, thus ensuring a standard recommended by Ministry of Health of Ukraine – one ambulance car per 10,000 persons. In Crimea, 145 medical teams make 1,500-2,000 responses a day. Due to modernization of emergency medical aid in cities, in 83.3% of cases, ambulances arrive within 10 minutes and in rural areas – within 20 minutes (93.4% of calls). In regions of Ukraine, this figure is 77.9%.
