Bangladesh country quote

I highly appreciate the significant efforts taken by our partners (HFG, WHO, and icddr,b) for costing the essential service package. This is a very sensitive and very important issue for us, and it will strengthen the support Health Economics Unit provides to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) for health sector planning.

Expanding Our Impact

Bangladesh has struggled with weak health systems, a lack of governance and severe air pollution. Abt’s technical assistance efforts contributed to improving governance in Bangladesh. The HFG project examined health care service selection within the private sector—specifically for young women and girls—to assess where support was needed. The project supported the Ministry of Health’s development of a health financing strategy. The SHOPS project worked towards reducing maternal and neonatal mortality. USAID’s CEADIR project utilized Abt’s expertise in renewable energy development and climate finance, addressing the threat climate change poses to Bangladesh’s wetlands, forests, and communities. An analysis of the country’s climate finance situation provided the Bangladeshi government with key institutional strategies for mitigating and adapting to climate change.
