A jury of WHO experts selected 21winners among 1,418 students from 18 medical faculties and nursing schools in Baku and other regions of the country. The winners received prizes, including a laptop, a tablet, and various medical devices and certificates. The results of the competition were also presented at the International Conference on Infection Prevention and Control in Geneva, Switzerland, in September 2021.
