Azerbaijani family is distinguished by its longevity.

There are more than 2 mln families in Azerbaijan, more than 80,000 families are created per year.

The statement came from the Chairman of the Azerbaijan State Committee for Family, Women and Children Hijran Huseynova, speaking at a conference on "National and cultural values: tradition and modernity", 1news.az reports.

According to her, Azerbaijan has a strong legal framework that protects the institution of the family.

"Reducing the incidence of child and maternal mortality is the result of a successful policy of the state", the head of the State Committee said.

Huseynova noted that the Azerbaijani model of the family is one of the best in the world.

She recalled that a film festival dedicated to Azerbaijani family, which aims at promoting family values among the younger generation, is held for the sixth consecutive year in the country.

The head of the State Committee said the fact that TV channels broadcast various shows, which speak about the destroyed families is negative. This, in her opinion, has a negative impact on the younger generation.
