URC’s first project in Ukraine was the Health Care Improvement Project (HCI), USAID's global mechanism to provide technical leadership and country assistance for the application of modern quality improvement (QI) methods. URC continued its work in the field to improve health care quality, rolling out the regional component of HCI, which assisted Ukrainian partners to reduce alcohol and tobacco use among pregnant women.

Most recently, URC has expanded its project portfolio in Ukraine to foster improvements in a range of health care processes through the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project. Subsequent to the global application of ASSIST in Ukraine, URC went on to implement the project’s national component to assist Ukrainian partners in reducing alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy.
