We have demonstrated that the Order of the Ministry of Public Health ôOn the reorganization by means of the addition of state institutionsö, 01.02.2019 ╣ 264 violated a single system of epidemiological supervision.

We have substantiated a necessity of the creation of a single Center for biological safety under the authority of the Ministry of Public Health of Ukraine according to the international standards by the example of the developed countries. The Center will carry out the practical and sanitary activities in the sphere of biosafety and sanitary protection as a part of state policy.
