Nutrition & Population

Up to five million people in Bangladesh are pushed into poverty every year because of healthcare costs.

Demographic transitions, lifestyle changes and environmental factors, combined with malnutrition, are leading to a country epidemiological shift from communicable to non-communicable diseases. Healthcare costs are rapidly increasing, with approximately two-thirds being covered by out-of-pocket expenditure in Bangladesh.

Our community-based healthcare approach employs a wide network of community health workers to ensure that people living in poverty can access high-quality, affordable services. Health workers are social entrepreneurs who ensure a continuum of care, bridging the gap between formal healthcare systems and communities
