MSF first worked in Azerbaijan in 1989 and today we run a mental health care support project for people in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Armenia: MSF sends team to aid people fleeing Nagorno-Karabakh
On September 19, Azerbaijan launched an attack on several locations in Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed territory that is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but mainly populated and governed by ethnic Armenians. Twenty-four hours later, a ceasefire was announced. Today, Armenian authorities reported that more than 28,000 ethnic Armenians have crossed the Lachin corridor between Nagorno-Karabakh and the Armenian border, in search of safety and humanitarian assistance in Armenia.
Our work in Azerbaijan
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) runs a mental health care support project for people in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
How we’re helping in Azerbaijan
In the Nagorno-Karabakh region—internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but mainly populated and governed by ethnic Armenians—we support mental health services by conducting training and monitoring patient care in public health facilities. The aim is to strengthen the technical capacity of local psychologists, health workers, and social workers in these locations, and improve access to mental health services.
