Research Projects for Scientific Cooperation

The project

The research team led by Dr. Radmyla Hrevtsova is currently working on the project “Organizational and Legal Support to Health Emergencies Prevention and Response.”

The world health care systems have lately faced such health emergency as COVID-19 pandemic. The Ukrainian health care system has also been confronted with the russia’s military aggression against Ukraine and the consequences of such aggression. This has increased the necessity of ensuring health emergencies preparedness and response, which the legal component is essential for. Taking this into account, the research is focusing on strengthening institutional capacities and improvement of the legislative landscape of health emergencies prevention and response.   

The research is conducted in the following directions:

1)    International law foundations for and foreign experience of the legal regulation of health emergencies preparedness and response;

2)    Institutional aspects of health emergencies prevention and response;

3)    Legislative support to health emergencies prevention and response;

4)    The practice of application of the Ukrainian legislation on health emergencies prevention and response; and

5)    Conceptual grounds for intersectoral cooperation in the sphere of health emergencies prevention and response.

The project is to result in mapping the required institutional and legislative changes and elaborating the proposals on the improvement of the Ukrainian legislation on health emergencies prevention and response as well as of the practice of its implementation.

The research team:

·        Mrs. Radmyla Hrevtsova, LLM (all hons), PhD (Law), Ass. Prof., Adv. - team leader;

·        Mrs. Anastasiia Sukhodolska, LLM, PhD (Law), Adv. – team member;

·        Mrs. Hanna Guseva, LLM, MBA, M.S. in biology - team member;

·        Mr. Sviatoslav Malyshevskyi, LLM (hons) (Edinburgh) – team member.

The cooperation goal is the strengthening of the capacities by
contribution of experts, especially the foreign ones, in the related areas such
as public administration, civil protection of population, medicine and
pharmacy, public health, IT and communication, etc. in order to expand the
horizons and view the subject matter through various professional lenses to
provide for the multi-faceted, in-depth analytics and practical recommendations
capable of improving the national health emergency preparedness and response.
