ABOUT US


AHHA aims to make Azerbaijan the place where people don’t have to die unanticipated death from cardiovascular disease. We will accomplish our vision through fundamental prevention activities which will bring awareness in local citizens and ensuring quality medical care.
AHHA is one of the leading associations in Azerbaijan which organizes seminars and symposiums within the country with the expectation in improving coordination and providing a forum for medical professionals to develop the clinical and research field in Azerbaijan. AHHA also invites international medical professionals to participate in seminars and share clinical experience in order to guide domestic professionals and internationalize the medical level of the country.
 
HISTORY
 
AHHA is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, established in September 2005, and is registered with the Justice Ministry of Azerbaijan Republic. In its inception it was named as Cardiovascular Surgeries Association and was started by two medical professionals aiming to contribute for the development of cardiovascular medicine via research into causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease. Since the association was established we have successfully held several national and international level conferences within the country. In August 2011, in order to broaden the scope of the association by including other professionals involved in cardiovascular medicine, the board members agreed to change the name into Azerbaijan Heart and Health Association. The members of AHHA are voluntarily united with common interests and are governed by a board of directors who execute the direction for the association.  The president of the association manages and organizes AHHA, establishing the equality of rights of its members.
