Heydar Aliyev Foundation on Ogtay Gulaliyev's treatment


Heydar Aliyev Foundation is currently continuing to provide the necessary assistance in the treatment of human rights activist Ogtay Gulaliyev, who is in a coma as a result of a traumatic brain injury, the Foundation says.

On behalf of the First Vice-President of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva, from November 4, the Foundation has been providing appropriate assistance in the treatment of Ogtay Gulaliyev. So, in order to support the treatment of Ogtay Gulaliyev, Turkish specialists were invited to Baku, and then, taking into account the desire of members of Ogtay Gulaliyev's family to continue his treatment in Turkey, on November 6, on the instructions of the President of the Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva, he was sent by special plane to Istanbul and placed in the 'Eurasia' clinic.

After some time, the family of Ogtay Gulaliyev appealed to the Foundation about his transfer to the American clinic. Ogtay Gulaliyev, who was placed at the American Clinic in Istanbul on November 19, had an intracranial hematoma removed and a bypass surgery performed. At the moment, with the support of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, the treatment of Ogtay Gulaliyev at the American Clinic continues.

Note that, according to the internal rules of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, every ten days a medical institution submits a report on the patient's condition to the Foundation. Based on these reports, in accordance with the dynamics of the development of the disease, the Foundation decides on the adoption of next measures that may be provided in connection with assistance from the Foundation.

According to the report for the next ten days, sent on December 9 from the American Clinic, there is an infection in the lung and blood of Ogtay Gulaliyev, who is in a coma, and treatment is underway. Given the current condition of the patient and the conclusion of the doctors, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation informed Ogtay Gulaliyev's wife, Firuza Gulaliyev, about the provision of appropriate support at the next stage of treatment. It was noted that the Heydar Aliyev Foundation is trying to provide assistance in the treatment of Ogtay Gulaliyev and to provide moral support to his family in these difficult days.

Given the above-mentioned, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation once again declares its humanistic intentions and desire to be close to every citizen at any moment, at any time, and opposes any political speculations around the current state of the patient undertaken by certain individuals in various interests.
