Gonoshasthaya Kendra Hospital and Village Health Program
Health management is not an isolated problem of society in Bangladesh. Therefore, health care development relies on addressing other related problems. Gonoshasthaya Kendra strongly believes that in order to develop health care, services must be integrated with other development activities. Therefore, GK works to gradually incorporate the following programs into the activities of each health center:
To develop people-oriented health management, and to make people aware of different health issues.
To provide basic education, particularly to women and children of poor families.
To organize women, particularly from land-less populations, and to provide financial assistance to alleviate poverty.
To make women aware and self-conscious of their rights and to encourage them to reach their full potential.
To promote the mother language of Bangla, and the spirit of the Liberation War, establishing its importance in national life.
To play an advocacy role for the well-being of poor people in Bangladesh and internationally.
To create social awareness about fundamentalist and communal violence, and to protect the interests of minority communities.
To undertake natural and man-made disaster-mitigation relief and rehabilitation programs and to conduct disaster preparedness programs.
To be a self-reliant organization.
Gonoshasthaya Kendra has continued to develop a program primarily focused on people-oriented health care service delivery, integrating programs in women's development, education, agriculture extension, poverty alleviation, and conservation of the environment in each of its operational areas.
Gonoshasthaya Kendra has faced many challenges and even has lost lives in its effort to establish its objectives of sustainability. Three workers have lost their lives to people opposed to GK's work.
GK has established the following health centers around Bangladesh:
BHATSALA HEALTH CENTER
SREEPUR HEALTH CENTER
SATURIA HEALTH CENTER
SHIBGONJ HEALTH CENTER
SORAJGONG HEALTH CENTER
SONAGAZI HEALTH CENTER
PARBATIPUR HEALTH CENTER
KASHINATHPUR HEALTH CENTER
COXS BAZAR HEALTH CENTER
CHARFASHION HEALTH CENTER
Gonoshasthaya Urban Hospital
Rapid urbanization has created an urban health crisis, characterised by economic inequality, environmental destruction, and a lack of people-friendly investments in the rural areas. Densely-populated urban slums are inhabited by generations of rural people lacking physical security. Oftentimes, gangs harass these people and illicit drug use is epidemic. Many women and children are forced into prostitution. They can be arrested, beaten and murdered without enforcement by the legal system. Women and girls can be detained “for their own protection” and subjected to harassment and rape. Trauma from traffic and industrial accidents, and violence are major health problems in the urban areas. Clean water and sanitation services are still not available, leading to intestinal and vector diseases. Dhaka, the capital, has the worst air pollution in the world. In response to this urban health crisis, GK has instituted an urban health program with a fully-equipped modern hospital and 11 community sub-centers near major urban slums.
The harsh realities of urban Dhaka, however, forced a change in GK's program policy. At one site, slum dwellers were evicted. At several other sites, the NGOs involved there were forced to discontinue working. Urban gangs, involved in protection rackets, selling drugs and other illicit activities, continuously harassed GK workers. It became clear that a change in approach was required.
Therefore, beginning in April 1999, the urban program changed to mobile clinics providing primary and school health care. GK also provides health services for garment workers. The 150-bed hospital provides a wide range of medical services for patients covered by GK's income-based health insurance program and the general public.
Primary Health Care and Paramedics
The use of paramedics ensures the delivery of health services to poor people living in rural areas. In addition to providing health care, employing paramedics enables women to find new and satisfying employment opportunities.
Paramedics are also trained to perform surgical procedures that previously were only performed by doctors. Remarkably, their performance and infection control exceeds that of trained medical doctors. A full discussion and analysis of their performance was published in the leading medical journal, The Lancet .
Gonoshasthaya Kendra introduced its Health Insurance Scheme to provide sustainable health care services. Insured persons or families pay for a health insurance subscription according to their socio-economic status; but all people get essential and appropriate health care. The Health Insurance Scheme classifies four different groups by reviewing the socio-economic status of the people living in project areas. Group A represents distressed women and poor people. Group B represents marginal farmers who face insufficiency and even starvation. Group C represents those who can afford to eat twice a day and have some surplus; and Group D represents those who do not have enough surplus but are sufficient.
Reducing Maternal Mortality and Infant Mortality
During the last three decades, GK has made significant improvements in its coverage of health services, especially in regards to reproductive health services and child health. In particular, GK has made noteworthy progress in achieving some of the Millennium Development Goals that are related to maternal and child health. The purpose of the two presentations on Maternal Mortality and Infant Mortality is to highlight these achievements and its underlying factors. These presentations use panel data to address the issue of reducing maternal mortality and infant mortality, and discuss the lessons learned by GK. This can be done by GK's own village level trained paramedics, as well as through improved birth weight, food security and overall reduction of poverty.

Lytton Medical School
During the later part of the British India, it was felt that the people of the north-eastern region needed the services of qualified medical personnel. The then Campbell Medical School of Calcutta and Mitford Medical School of Dhaka were unable to cater for the needs of the growing population. With this background the third medical school for the region, was established in 1924 in Mymensingh, after the world war-1, by the EARL OF LYTTON, the then Governor of Bengal. This school was named as Lytton Medical School to run four year course of Licentiate of Medical Faculty (LMF). This course of LMF continued till 1962, when it was upgraded to a five-year undergraduate medical course under Dhaka University and the school was renamed as Mymensingh Medical College.
Situated 120 km away from the north of the capital city Dhaka, Mymensingh has a rich historical heritage. Having been once the administrative head quarter of the largest district in the whole of Indo-Pak subcontinent during the British rule, this district town has gradually developed itself from a sleepy quiet little town (declared a Municipality in 1869) of Rajas and Maharajas, Zaminders (landlords) and tenants and other professional into a big town, having all kinds of educational and institutions.
Standing on the southern and eastern bank of old Brahmaputra river the town offers a very convenient communication network of railway and roads with the rest of the country. Two hours drive away from Dhaka makes it one of the nearest and most accessible of all the district towns.
Mymensingh takes pride in the Jainul Abedin Art Gallery which has on its walls some of the finest works in water color by renowned painter, Jainul Abedin.
Among its other attractions is the Madhupur National park which is 35 km away to the north-east. It is a very popular picnic spot during the winter.

Affiliated Hospital: Mitford Hospital
Mitford Hospital established in 1820, named after Sir Robert Mitford, Collector of Dhaka and also a long serving judge of the Provincial Court of Appeal. During his time there was an alarming cholera epidemic and at the height of it 150 to 200 persons died daily in Dhaka. Medical facilities were inadequate. Sir Mitford was distressed to see the suffering of the people. Before his death in England in 1836, he bequeathed the bulk of his property (about Rs 800,000) to the government of Bengal for benevolent works in Dhaka including building of a hospital. This was disputed by his successors but finally, in 1850, the Chancery Court partially decreed in favour of the Bengal Government, by virtue of which it received Rs 166,000. With this fund the hospital was started in 1854 on its present site, and then known as 'Katra Pakurtali', Babu Bazar. Prior to this, the site was occupied by a Dutch kuthi (house). From the inception, the hospital was under the administration of a board accountable to Dhaka Municipality. A female ward was established in the hospital in 1882 with generous donations from Nawab Khwaza Ahsanullah of Dhaka and Raja Rajendra Narayan Roy of Bhawal. Nawab Ahsanullah also donated Rs 50,000 to set up Lady Dufferin Hospital within the same compound in 1888-89. A European ward was established in the hospital in 1887, and in 1889-90 Raja Srinath Roy of Bhaggyakul set up an eye ward at a cost of Rs 3, 00,000 in memory of his mother. It got the recognition of a first grade hospital in 1917.The hospital, in addition to different wards, accommodated lecture halls, dissecting rooms, and an out-patients' department. It remained a general hospital and did not undergo much change in size and types of services over time. It occupies an oblong area of about 12.8 acres (52,000 m2) of land on the river bank and the hospital complex comprises more than fourteen blocks of no particular architectural significance but historically important and eventually of utilitarian character. Most of the blocks were originally single-storied and now have been raised to four storeys. The hospital provides both indoor and outdoor treatments as well as pathological and diagnostic services. It serves about 1,000 outdoor patients daily. As of 1999, the hospital had 600 beds, of which 240 were paying.
