Yesterday, two Iranian-Armenian physicians arrived to Artsakh for a two-day visit, during which they will provide free medical examinations in several communities. The visit was organized by the Tufenkian Foundation and is a part of our efforts to improve healthcare in Artsakh.
The two physicians — pediatric cardiologist Armen Kocharyan and surgeon Alfred Avagyan — spent their first day in Stepanakert, where they conducted several types of examinations and provided consultations.
Over 20 children of different ages were examined at the “Arevik” Children’s Medical Unit on the first day.
Pregnant women — patients of the “Center of Mother and Child Health Protection” — also underwent examinations and received free consultations from the two physicians.
Today, the physicians are in Martakert, where they are working with regional medical units to conduct examinations that are not normally available in remote communities.
We will organize another similar visit in the Fall, this time to the liberated borderlands of Artsakh, where medical care is scare and free services are much needed.

A deep connection to the land, a strong sense of community and simplicity of living – this is what life in these villages is all about. We spent the past few days in some of the most remote villages of Artsakh, talking to people and hearing their stories. These villages are where the Armenian world starts, it is where Armenian life starts, and we think it is important for each of us to learn about the people who live here. Very soon, we will share with you the stories we have been fortunate to collect here. But for now, enjoy these images of village life in two of Artsakh’s liberated districts – Kashatagh and Hadrut.read More
