This is because care for the science of medicine and the profession of a doctor has been historically regarded as care for humanity. In the modern times, the level of healthiness of people and access to healthcare services are considered to be a key indicator in the development of countries. Our national leader Heydar Aliyev kept this issue in focus during both terms of his leadership of our country and healthcare building took a strong momentum in Azerbaijan. The healthcare reforms founded by the national leader are being successfully continued by the President of the country, Mr. Ilham Aliyev”.

Speaking at the event, the rector of the Nakhchivan State University, Elbrus Isayev, said that the organization of the medical forum in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic has great prominence as a successful result of the dynamic way that the modern healthcare infrastructure and medical education, which have been under construction for many years, have gone through.

In a period when globalization and internationalization have great importance, the ranking of the university among the world’s best institutions of higher education is a proud achievement.

Nowadays, the Azerbaijan Medical University is one of the leading education facilities in our region. The university carries out comprehensive cooperation with about 80 scientific and education facilities from 20 countries. In addition, the Azerbaijan Medical University and the Nakhchivan State University signed a memorandum of understanding," the rector said.
