Wlodzimierz Cimoszewicz (Anti-corruption), Otto Depenheuer (Constitution), Waldemar Pawlak (Economy), Lord Macdonald (Rule of Law) as well as Paul Robert Vogt and Illya Yemets (both responsible for the topic of Healthcare) are finalising the Programme for the modernisation of Ukraine in Oxford.

Double Team Takes Over "Health" Workstream
New in the team are Paul Robert Vogt and Illya Yemets, who are working on the topic of "Health". The preparations by "Doctors Without Borders" founder Bernard Kouchner serve as a foundation. The Swiss Vogt is a specialist for cardiovascular diseases. He is involved in the "EurAsia Heart Foundation", a medical network in Eastern Europe and Asia that deals with cardiovascular disorders of children, youth and adults. The Ukrainian Yemets was the Health Minister of Ukraine for one year and is the director and head doctor of the "Ukrainian Children's Cardiac Centre".
Preliminary Work for the Programme for the Modernisation of Ukraine
In the past few months, aside from a multitude of one-on-one meetings with experts and representatives of the civil society in Ukraine (a total of 155 individual appointments), there were five round table meetings with contributions from more than 300 participants in Kyiv. The results are now finding their way into the "Ukraine Modernisation Programme."
AMU President Michael Spindelegger: "We are giving the final touch to the Programme for the modernisation of Ukraine here in Oxford to be able to present it to the Ukrainian public at the beginning of autumn."
