Nagorno Karabakh's health care system almost entirely collapsed during the war. Since then, with the assistance of the U.S. Congress and other international humanitarian organizations, birthing hospitals were rebuilt in Stepanakert and three other regional centers.
However, the Central Republican hospital, built in 1930, suffered endured shelling and air raids, leaving it impossible to restore structurally. Today, it lacks even the most basic facilities. A new structure plus hospital equipment is needed to meet the health care needs of the population in the area.
Altogether, 21 hospitals and other medical facilities need repair and modern medical equipment. Medical training programs for hospital personnel are also critical.
