Description

Bangladesh Women's Health Coalition (BWHC), a national NGO, was established in 1980 with the vision of 'Equality of Women in a Just Civil Society'. The organization is pioneered in establishing a health service delivery model, where the community mother can access a wide range of health services for her and her children with informed voice and choice. Currently, the organization runs four major programs (Rural and Semi Urban SRHR, RTI/ STI/HIV AIDS and Adolescent Health) and five pilot projects ( Health Ageing, FPTRR, WHRAP, SAAF, GFATM - 908), through 40 reproductive health centers, which cover five administrative divisions in rural and urban locations. Each health center follows a two prong service delivery approach covering both clinic and community based activities. The underlying motto of this approach is to expose community people with a wide array of information and services that ultimately complement women development initiatives. BWHC's overall program has several distinct characteristics to address major areas like Safe Motherhood, Child Survival, Family Planning and its management, Management of unwanted pregnancy, Prevention and Control of STI/HIV/AIDS, Empathetic Counseling, Community based awareness raising leading to behavior change communication, Adolescent Family Life Education, Development and Maintenance of Volunteer Cadre for sustaining the community development program. All these programs are being supported by decentralized functional Management Information System.
