BAKU, Azerbaijan, April 6


On April 6, a video address by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev was presented at the headquarters of the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, on the initiative of the Director-General of the Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The video address by the heads of state and government of the 4 countries was broadcast at the event.

“Every year since 1950 we celebrate a World Health Day on April 7,” the president said. “But 2021 is the year when the importance of health became even more significant. Having a modern, sustainable, high-quality healthcare is a priority for every country.”

“Healthcare system in Azerbaijan is currently going through a significant change,” the president said. “With the implementation of mandatory health insurance, Azerbaijan is strengthening the primary health care, renovating the emergency medical care services, facilitating the digitalization by starting e-health platform and national health accounts within the country.”

“In the meantime, the second year of COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to put enormous pressure on healthcare systems around the world,” the president said. “Azerbaijan was among the first countries to mobilize global efforts against COVID-19 pandemic.”

“We initiated the Summit of the Turkic Council in April 2020, the Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in May 2020, and the Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) at the level of the heads of state and government in December 2020,” the president added.

“Honoring its international responsibility, Azerbaijan has made voluntary contributions to the World Health Organization in the amount of 10 million US dollars,” the president said.

“We have also provided direct humanitarian and financial assistance to more than 30 countries in their fight with the coronavirus,” the president said. “This year’s World Health Day is dedicated to “building a fairer and healthier world” and the question of equal and fair distribution of vaccines is of paramount importance for this cause.”

“Yet we all are deeply concerned by the unequal and unfair distribution of vaccines among developing and developed countries,” the president said. “Some countries hoard several times more vaccines compared to their actual needs. It’s clear that in such circumstances, other countries will face vaccine shortages.”

“Supporting fairness in vaccine distribution Azerbaijan put forward a draft resolution - “Ensuring equitable, affordable, timely and universal access for all countries to vaccines in response to the coronavirus disease pandemic” - at the UN Human Rights Council,” the president said. “The resolution was adopted by consensus on March 23 this year.”

“Azerbaijan was also among the first countries to join and support the COVAX initiative,” the president said. “We and the whole international community expect this initiative to become a model of cooperation and solidarity in response to the pandemic. Only together we will overcome the pandemic and will return to normal life. Happy World Health Day!”
