USAID is working with the Government of Azerbaijan to increase the use of quality healthcare services and encourage better informed health maintenance practices among the people of Azerbaijan. Programs focus on strengthening primary healthcare, family planning and reproductive health, and emergency medicine. USAID is working with the Ministry of Health and district government authorities on critical healthcare policy and institutional reforms, increasing the level and improving the targeting of healthcare financing, and assuring that people and communities are better informed and more engaged in the operation of the healthcare service provision system.
