Bangladesh: <br><em>Our impact <br>and progress</em>

Our impact
and progress

In Bangladesh, a public primary care provider spends less than a minute on average conveying care instructions to patients.

Despite significant progress over the last few decades, the preventable disease burden in Bangladesh remains high —accounting for 67 percent of all deaths.

Health systems challenges are vast, but solutions and hope exist.

Family members and loved ones are known to play a crucial role in a patient’s healing journey, yet they are often left out of this process.

Alongside our health systems partners in Bangladesh, we provide culturally-tailored caregiver training and evidence-based resources to shift the power back to patients and caregivers.

    “After witnessing Noora Health’s Care Companion Program session today, I felt that it was something all doctors should be doing. The session was very well planned and thought out. Sharing medically-correct information might seem like a small step, but it can have a significant impact.”

  • From our stakeholders

    “We didn’t think that people would welcome the follow-up calls. But eventually it turns out that it helped families feel honored and cared for. We thank Noora Health for improving people’s satisfaction, trust, and confidence in the health service delivery of our country.”

  • From our stakeholders

    This is a unique service that was delivered at the family level during the pandemic on behalf of the Directorate General of Health Services. It helped boost the mental well-being of patients isolated at home during this difficult time.”
