Background

The study "Ukrainian health reform amid the pandemic" was carried by Gorshenin Institute and Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Ukraine in September-December 2019. It included five focus-group discussions in Central (Kyiv), Western (Lviv), Eastern (Dnipro), Southern (Odesa) and Northern (Chernihiv) regions of Ukraine and face-to-face interviews by respondents' places of residence. Overall, 2,000 respondents aged over 18 were interviewed in all regions of Ukraine (except for occupied parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, Crimea and Sevastopol) by quotas of residence, gender and age. The margin of error does not exceed +/- 2.2%.
