Azerbaijan: Education, Health, and Welfare
Country Study > Chapter 5 > Education, Health, and Welfare

EDUCATION, HEALTH, AND WELFARE


When the Soviet Union crumbled, Azerbaijan, like other former Soviet republics, was forced to end its reliance upon the uniform, centralized system of social supports that had been administered from Moscow. In the early 1990s, however, Azerbaijan did not have the resources to make large-scale changes in the delivery of educational, health, or welfare services, so the basic Soviet-era structures remained in place.
