Baku, 11 February 2020 – The Ministry of Health and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are continuing to work closely together to further strengthen Azerbaijan's healthcare procurement system.

Another round of life-saving medicine has been successfully procured and delivered to the Ministry of Health, including 2 types of medicines for the treatment of Hepatitis C, 18 types of medicines for HIV and 19 types of medicines for TB patients.

The procurement and delivery process of this medicine is implemented by UNDP as part of the joint project with the Ministry of Health which aims to ensure the provision of quality healthcare services to the population of Azerbaijan by supporting cost-efficient, transparent and timely procurement of medicines that save lives.

This project was initiated with the support of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as a step towards ensuring government financing for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and tuberculosis medicines.
