OpenWHO in Azerbaijan: medics join thousands of online courses in EU-supported platform 


The number of Azerbaijani health workers taking part in WHO online courses has increased by 18,000 in the past six months, according to the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan. 

Over 150 free courses in Azerbaijani, Turkish and Russian languages are available on the Azerbaijan Page of OpenWHO online training platform, launched jointly by The European Union and the World Health Organization (WHO) as part of the Solidarity for Health Initiative and COVID-19 Vaccination Support projects. 

Ujar District Central Hospital, Yevlakh District Central Hospital, Republican Clinical Hospital, as well as two children’s polyclinics in Baku reached the highest number of trainees among medical institutions joining the online courses.

Among the healthcare workers, Dr Ziyafat Guliyeva from the pediatric polyclinic №20 ranked the highest by completing 81 courses on the platform. “I found it very useful that learning methods on disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment include not only written materials, but video clips with details, as well. I got acquainted with the new methodology on taking medications along with the modern diagnostics techniques,” said Dr Guliyeva.
