Good observations of Bangladesh’s rural socioeconomic dependency on basic health care. I believe the villages, referred in this blog, are in the near vicinity of the capital Dhaka. Would be good to know how BRAC influences health care of the unprivileged in more remote areas of Bangladesh.

It’s well documented that poverty is deep and widespread throughout Bangladesh. However, what is not always reported to the international community is that Bangladeshis are resilient in their resolve to effect change to their everyday lives. International aid plays a part to help bring much needed life necessities to the communities, but what’s remarkable is that in the face of adversity and abject poverty people like Rasheda continue to find the strength to be the driving force to help her fellow man. Rasheda is truly an inspiration.
Western World make note!

I have seen Brac’s work first hand. Its actually beneficial for the through Brac’s tiny programs. i have seen where people do not go the hospitals for their treatment because of their unawareness of the diseases and people not demanding their right for the very same reason, unawareness. These programs reach people without people going through much hassle, increasing our HDI everyday.
