Free infertility treatment in 2023 will take 537 couples

In 2023, 537 couples will undergo free infertility treatment, while in 2022, 467 families did so, the director of the Medical Services Department of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine Aleksandra Mashkevych said.
“The procedure is completely free of charge and guaranteed by the state. Of course, I can’t say that the procedure will be completely successful for all couples – it’s the kind of process where no one ever gives a 100% guarantee. But we have a 50% success rate of insemination”, – she said on the air of a telethon on Thursday.
Mashkevych said that couples can undergo the free procedure within the program in three medical centers managed by the Ministry of Health in Kiev, Ivano-Frankivsk and Kharkiv.
She specified that within the framework of the state program, the first procedure is free of charge. If it is not successful, the next attempts are made at the expense of the patients.
However, she noted that the Ministry of Health is planning to initiate changes in the state program, under which a greater number of attempts for women of certain categories should be free.
“We in the Ministry are working on it. The parliamentary committee of the nation’s health, medical care and health insurance is also actively involved. We hope that in the near future the law on assisted reproductive technologies, which will more deeply regulate the procedure of assisted reproductive technologies and make the procedure accessible to more of our citizens, will be published in the state,” – she said.
Mashkevych said that the average price of one attempt of artificial insemination may amount to 40-50 thousand hryvnias.

It is known that the so-called “post-COVID syndrome,” or the duration of symptoms of coronavirus disease, can last 12 weeks or more from the onset of the disease. The symptoms can occur from any system of the patient’s body, but most often it is the respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous and digestive systems.
Also among the symptoms of “post-COVID syndrome” are neurological disorders, such as prolonged weakness even after a mild course of the disease, sleep disturbances and severe weakness. Cognitive disorders are also common – impaired memory and functions of the higher nervous system.
Ukrainian experts and their colleagues from the EU in the United States recommend restorative therapy, physical rehabilitation, proper nutrition and normal sleep. Patients with clear complaints need additional examination and correction if necessary.
The Dnipro-Beskyd health resort became the first one in Truskavets where a comprehensive rehabilitation program after COVID-19 using unique mineral waters was developed and implemented.
Today, tens of thousands of Ukrainians suffer from post-COVID syndrome, many need long-term rehabilitation. The virus aggressively attacks the lungs, and complications can spread to the nervous, cardiovascular and digestive systems. Therefore, specialists from Dnipro-Beskyd together with scientists from the Ukrainian Research Institute of Medical Rehabilitation and Balneology of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine have developed effective methods that have already helped many return to normal life.
The rehabilitation program for patients with post-COVID syndrome in the Dnipro-Beskyd health and hotel complex is unique and exclusive, because only here there is an opportunity to conduct effective rehabilitation using Pomiretska Naftusya mineral water.
It has been known since 1836, has no analogues in the world, the composition of beneficial bacteria is ten times greater than in all existing analogues, while mineralization is much less, which allows faster digesting by the human body. It has been scientifically proven that Naftusya is the only “living water” in the world that strengthens human immunity. The healing properties of Naftusya were first described in the Ceplice works by royal (Polish) physician Wojciech Oczko in 1578. Water is received in the world’s first pump room with a contactless access system in Europe.
Also, only patients of Dnipro-Beskyd undergo rehabilitation with the use of natural hydrogen sulfide mineral water from well No. 123, one of the oldest sources, known since 1836.
During the baths, hydrogen sulfide enters the human body through the skin and mucous membranes, as well as through the lungs during respiration. As a result of its action, hydrogen sulfide normalizes blood pressure, increases blood flow and slows heart rate, improves metabolism, reduces the manifestations of various inflammatory processes, strengthens intervertebral cartilaginous discs, increases oxygen consumption and pulmonary ventilation. Hydrogen sulfide baths help normalize the immune and nervous systems. Patients become calm, their sleep and mood improve.
The use of unique mineral waters in combination with a modern medical and diagnostic base and highly qualified medical staff makes the program as effective as possible. This allows you to return to a normal lifestyle in the shortest possible time.
Patients who have already undergone the rehabilitation program note significant improvements, after the first days of treatment they can move without shortness of breath, cough decreases, sleep and general condition improve.
