"According to our surveys, people in Azerbaijan trust the health workers whom they know. This is a good indicator," said the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Azerbaijan, Hande Harmanci.
The WHO official noted that the search engine could not find any information about what people think about organ transplantation in Azerbaijan: "This does not mean that no investigation has been conducted in the country. People can only accept health services if they work. Otherwise, no results can be obtained. We need to work together to build trust in people to access health care on time. People from different professions can come together and achieve successful work in this field."
Jeyhun Mammadov, head of the Medical Service Department of the State Customs Committee, stressed that the lack of donor organs in Azerbaijan and the inability to transplant organs from the deceased remain an obstacle:
"Thus, 36.2% of kidney transplants and 19.2% of liver transplants in the world are taken from live donors. No country performs organ transplantation only from a live donor. Some surgeries with organ transplantation become impossible due to a lack of donors."
