MSF closed our last projects in Azerbaijan in 2003.

MSF first worked in Azerbaijan in 1989 and closed our last missions in 2003. During that time, we provided medical care to people with a physical or mental disability, and provided maternal and paediatric care through clinics.

We also worked in Nagorno-Karabakh, a self-proclaimed republic internationally recognised as belonging to Azerbaijan, but which is home to many ethnic Armenians. We provided emergency relief and food distributions, and medical care to people fleeing the region’s war during the 1990s, and later, treated people with tuberculosis.

During the 1990s, MSF teams rehabilitated public health structures in the country. We also provided an immunisation programme and worked on preventing sexually-transmitted diseases in clinics in the Imishli, Saatli and Fizuli regions, in the country’s southwest, until January 2001. We provided free basic healthcare in clinics just outside Sumgayit, on the Caspian Sea coast, in the early 2000s, before regional health programmes were handed over to other organisations.
