BRAC works to combat poverty in 70,000 villages and 2,000 slums, and reaches three quarters of the entire population with an integrated package of services for rural and urban communities. We employ more than 100,000 people – microfinance officers, teachers, health staff and enterprise managers – to be on the very doorstep of the poorest families making our services accessible, relevant and adaptable.

We are currently working on:

Improving primary health care using community clinics in rural Bangladesh

Improving the diagnosis and treatment of CVD, diabetes and related conditions through primary healthcare in Bangladesh

Assessing the effectiveness of using Public-Private Partnerships to improve family planning services in Bangladesh

Training community health workers to provide care for non-communicable diseases in Bangladesh
