The article investigates the current state of provision of medical rehabilitation assistance and services in Ukraine, analyzes the state-administrative aspect, identifies what positive actions the state authorities have undertaken for the effective development and improvement of the system of medical rehabilitation assistance, explores the problematic aspects in this field of health care. I have proposed my own vision for solving these problems. The model of effective state management of the development of medical rehabilitation assistance is developed. The main purpose of the article is to investigate the current state of public administration in the provision of medical and rehabilitation assistance.The problem of the development and effective management of medical rehabilitation assistance has always been a focus, especially when the anti-terrorist operation began in 2014. It was then that the number of people in need of rehabilitation increased significantly. However, there are a number of problems that remain unresolved in the industry.Theoretical and methodological basis of the article are the fundamental works and developments of leading domestic and foreign scientists on the problems of modern health policy, legislative and regulatory acts of the country. In the course of the study the following methods were applied: dialectical and abstract-logical (in generalizing theoretical and methodological principles of medical rehabilitation assistance), graphic (in developing a model of effective state management of medical rehabilitation assistance development), analytical (in the study of the current state of medical rehabilitation provision assistance and services in Ukraine), statistical (when building the dynamics of medical rehabilitation assistance provided), etc.The official base of the research is the official statistical and operational data of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, the Ministry of Health, the regulatory framework, information from the global Internet, the development of scientific and medical organizations, scientists and specialists of Ukraine and other countries, as well as the results of their own research and calculations.
