Medicines from abroad

Summary

Tabletochki Charity Foundation supplies medicines (chemotherapy, target therapy, immunotherapy, and supportive therapy), which are unavailable in Ukraine and are to be purchased and brought from abroad. Without access to these medicines, the treatment of certain children with cancer will be incomplete and compromised - they will either relapse or die from the severe complications.

Challenge

Certain essential medicines for the treatment of children with cancer (in particular, for the stem cell transplants) are unavailable in Ukraine - neither from the public procurement nor in pharmacies. Such medicines are to be purchased and brought from abroad. They are typically expensive (e.g., 1 vial of Erwinase or Thiotepa costs about EUR 1,000). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated quarantine restrictions, the import of such medicines became very complicated.

Solution

For 9 months of 2020 we purchased and brought from abroad the otherwise unavailable medicines to 109 children. We've been spending about EUR 30,000 per month to cover the respective costs.

Long-Term Impact

These medicines are a part of the international treatment protocols and increase the survival rate of Ukrainian children with cancer. Access to these medicines elevate the standards of treatment of childhood cancer in Ukraine and gives extra chance to the children who need such medicines to get cured and survive.
