IMISHLI – On June 19, 2015 residents of the Gobektala community of Imishli rayon, representatives of the local ExCom and the municipality, officials from the Ministry of Economy and Industry (MEI), and USAID representatives gathered to mark the successful completion of the construction of a new medical facility. The facility was constructed under the Socio-Economic Development Activity (SEDA) project in close cooperation with the local NGO, UMID, and co-financed by the governments of the United States and Azerbaijan.

The Gobektala community has long been deprived of an adequate building and equipment to provide quality health care services. To address this issue, the community through the Community Development Council worked with the SEDA project, the Regional Health Department of the Ministry of Health and the municipality to build the new medical facility. With two examination rooms and one corridor for a waiting room, the new facility will improve the day-to-day health conditions for nearly 1500 people in the community.
