Azerbaijan's leading IT Company Cybernet was the winner of a World Bank-supported tender announced by the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Kazakhstan in the framework of the project “Kazakhstan Health Sector Technology Transfer and Institutional Reform.” The contract was signed on 6 December in Astana, Kazakhstan. There were 10 companies from Portugal, Slovakia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Russia participating in the tender along with the Cybernet-led consortium which also includes Russian IT Company, BARS Group.
The system will be developed by Azerbaijani specialists and will be the product of Azerbaijan.
Cybernet CEO Ilham Namazov believes that the tender is an important step for both the company and the country. “Cybernet has developed products for clients from several countries until now, but winning an international tender at this moment is of significant importance,” he says.

Our achievement will play an important role in the international recognition of Azerbaijan as a producer of intellectual products.”
The unified automated system that will be developed within the framework of the project will make it possible for the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Kazakhstan to improve the efficiency of their work and also to train specialists to international standards.
