Welcome to Community Based Health Care
Community Clinic (CC) is the innovation of Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to extend Primary Health Care to the doorsteps of rural people all over rural Bangladesh. Thousands of people are getting services from the CCs & it has become an integral part of health system. It is a unique example of Public-Private partnership as all the CCs have been constructed on community donated land while construction, medicine, service providers, logistics & all other inputs are from Govt. but management is both by community and Govt. through Community Group (CG). Community owns CC & plays active role for its improvement in all regards. People are satisfied with the services of CC as it is the one stop service outlet in respect of Health, Family Planning & Nutrition.
It is the flagship program of present Govt. At present 13136 CCs are on board as June 2016 and number is gradually increasing. In many cases Medical Officers & SACMOs are visiting CCs periodically and providing services to the complicated cases. All the CCs have been provided with Laptop & internet connection and have been reporting on line. E-health from CC to UHC has been introduced in some places. We hope that in near future E-heath will be scaled up all over the country. We believe that CC will be able to contribute substantially in achieving SDGs like MDGs & health for everybody will be ensured.
