Health in Iran: The Untold Story (Persian) – بهداشت در ایران: داستانی ناگفته

October 25, 2021, in Videos > Documentary, by

This is the Persian version of “Health In Iran: The Untold Story”, an animation by filmmaker Flavio Azm Rassekh and PersianBMS about the Syyhat Hospital and its adjacent educational facilities in Iran, which were built under the instructions of Abdu’l-Baha and run by American doctors who brought women’s health care and Western medicine to Iran.

In spite of all the great medical achievements in the West at the turn of the 20th century, Iran was still deeply immersed in a fog of superstition and fanaticism, and modern medicine was still looked at with distrust as almost 98% of the population was illiterate. While researching about the first Western-style hospitals in Iran, filmmaker Flavio Azm Rassekh found out that an important part of Iran’s history had been erased from the 20th century – namely, the Syyhat Hospital and its adjacent educational facilities, so he decided to bring this history back through this short animation.

This film was made by Flavio Azm Rassekh in collaboration with PersianBMS and Ganje Penhan.

حدود 98 درصد جمعیت بی‌سواد بودند، ‌اعتمادی به پزشکی مدرن وجود نداشت. وقتی مشغول تحقیق دربارۀ اولین بیمارستان‌های مدرن ایران بودیم، متوجه شدیم که بخش مهمی از تاریخ ایران از قرن بیستم محو شده است. این بخش مربوط به بیمارستان صحت و امکانات آموزشی همراه با آن بود که تحت هدایت حضرت عبدالبهاء ساخته شد و به وسیلۀ پزشکان آمریکایی که بهداشت زنان و پزشکی غربی را به ایران آوردند، راه‌اندازی شد.
