Azerbaijan: EU support to help mental health care facilities tackle COVID

October 15, 2021

As part of the EU-funded Solidarity for Health Initiative, the World Health Organization (WHO) in Azerbaijan is supporting long-term mental health care facilities in the context of COVID-19.

WHO experts recently assessed the two biggest psychiatric facilities in the country for infection prevention control and COVID-19 case management. The assessment aimed to understand areas where COVID-19 has impacted on the daily lives of patients, to identify areas to provide support for infection prevention measures, and identifying and managing individuals with COVID-19. 

The EU-WHO project has also deployed three psychologists and three social workers for six months to the two facilities to provide capacity-building training for healthcare workers.
