Available Medicines through Instant Messengers for Ukrainians

The Ministry of digital transformation in Ukraine has created a helpful service that will be useful for everyone

The Ministry of digital transformation in Ukraine has launched a service called Ask Hryts, which will allow Ukrainians to receive drugs under the state program Available Medicines through chatbots in Telegram and Viber messengers.

Thanks to these bots, citizens of Ukraine will be able not only to get the necessary information about medicines but also to get medicine in any locality according to the state program.

“Ask Hryts is another effective service that will help you find affordable medicines and get directions to the pharmacy where you can buy them. It will remind you about receiving the next prescription and help organize a first-aid kit at home,” said Natalіa Huran, the author of the project, chairman of the NGO Drug Control.

Note that the project was expanded the day before. Now the Available Medicines program includes drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, the prevention of heart attacks and strokes, bronchial asthma, type II diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, mental and behavioral disorders, and epilepsy.
