Volodymyr Zelenskyy presented the Healthy Ukraine program
Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced the start of the President’s national program “Healthy Ukraine”.
UA informs this.
According to him, the program is aimed at increasing the life expectancy of the population in the country.
“The program is aimed at all age categories and groups of our population and is aimed at achieving one goal: Ukrainians should live longer”, – Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
The head of state said that the average life expectancy in Ukraine is 72 years.
“By this indicator, we are on the 115th place in the world. But the worst thing here is not the ratings, but the fact that the population of Ukraine is decreasing yearly. To understand this threat, it is enough to count how many of us will live in 10-20 or 50 years, if we do not change this situation”, – the president said.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that a healthy and active lifestyle should be popular and become an integral part of society in Ukraine.
Within the framework of the program, a model of a healthy school should appear, which provides for the reform of school nutrition, popularization of sports sections, and a new concept of physical education lessons.
The President also announced the introduction of a complete medical examination system for Ukrainians older than 55.
Creation of a network of “active” parks and sports grounds in Ukraine will become another component of the program.
