The Azerbaijan Pages

Health Care and Relief

United Nations

The United Nations Department of Humanitarian Affairs (UNDHA) now has a large section on its Web page relating to Azerbaijan, (including general information about the country, as well as about the Relief situation).

Other UN sources:


Medical Assessment of Azerbaijan by the International Federation of the Red Cross / Red Crescent

This document was received from the NIS/CEE Health Care Clearinghouse (also known as NISHEALTH) which "provides information pertaining to health and technical assistance in the New Independent States of the former Soviet Union (NIS) and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)." There is now a NISHEALTH WWWeb Page. As of this writing, this page has only just been set up, but the intention is to "include capabilities for performing searches of the various Clearinghouse directories/databases"
