Faculty of public health

History: one of the first faculties of the Azerbaijan Medical Institute (1930) was the Sanitary- prophylactic faculty. During the first years this faculty trained specialists in food hygiene, housing and communal hygiene, sanitation and epidemiology. In 1932, the faculty of Tropical Medicine was organized, and in 1933 it was merged with the Sanitary and Preventive Faculty. It was renamed the Sanitary and Hygienic Faculty. In 1936, this faculty was closed by order of higher organizations. However, it soon became apparent that the decision was impractical, and the faculty was rebuilt since 1938.

Since 1991 the faculty has been renamed into the faculty of "Medical Prevention".

One of the first deans of the faculty was Professor J. Huseynov. In subsequent years, the faculty was under management: Associate Professor N.G. Bagirov (1944-1949); Associate Professor A.

Mammadov (1985-1992); Professor H.H. Ibragimov (1992-1995); Associate Professor A.M Mammadov (1995-2017). In 2017, Dean of the Faculty was elected Associate Professor A. Agayev.
