Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh

Elise Boghossian, founder of EliseCare traveled regularly between 2002 and 2011 to Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh in order to provide assistance to the civilian populations affected by the war.


Nagorno-Karabakh, historically Armenian land, was attached to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan by Stalin. Since 1991 and the breakdown of the USSR, Nagorno-Karabakh has been fighting for its independence. This war is one of the deadliest ethnic conflicts of the post-Soviet era.

Sensitive to the problems of the civilian populations who are suffering from this tragedy, Elise Boghossian went there in 2002 to help. First in Yerevan, to work with a hospital in the capital, then directly on site in Nagorno-Karabakh where she will return regularly until 2011.

Acupuncture provides real help to war wounded, especially to relieve them of severe pain.

This is why EliseCare decided to make a commitment from 2014 in Iraq by implementing mobile & fixed clinics.
