Insulin plant to be built
A major British company intends to build an insulin plant in Azerbaijan.
Minister for Health Ali Insanov has dismissed the reports saying that insulin, which is mainly used for animals and is dangerous for human body, will be imported to the country. The goal of constructing the plant is to produce high quality insulin, he said.
Insanov noted that a draft program on diabetics will be approved by the Milli Majlis (parliament) by the year-end. President Ilham Aliyev has agreed upon the program implementation, he said.
The Minister added that statistically, there are about 60,000 people suffering from diabetes in Azerbaijan.*
