The publication presents a brief overview of the key achievements and outcomes to which WHO contributed through selected activities conducted by the WHO Country Office in Ukraine with the aim of strengthening the function of the Ukrainian health system within the framework of the biennial collaborative agreements for 2016–2017 and 2018–2019.

The activities were informed by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in particular by Sustainable Development Goal 3, to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
