Govt reaches health services to doorsteps of people: Speaker

Jatiya Sangsad Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin

Chaudhury today said the incumbent government led by Prime Minister Sheikh

Hasina has reached health services to the doorsteps of people.

The government has set up more than 12,000 community clinics across the

country to reach health services to the doorsteps of common people. Those

community clinics also provide 32 types of medicines free of cost, she said

while visiting Hilalpur Community Clinic at Putijuri union under Bahubal

upazila of the district.

The speaker said earlier the common people especially women and children

had to go to distant hospitals to receive health services.

But setting up of community clinics has increased the availability of

health services and made it easier for women and children, she added.

Chaudhury said because of the different initiatives of the government,

child and maternity mortality rate has reduced significantly.

The Speaker said the government has made a huge development in the sector

of information and communication technology to turn the country into a

Digital Bangladesh.

She said now people of remote areas are receiving health tips and other

services from urban physicians through telemedicine.

Chaudhury said the country is moving ahead under the dynamic leadership of

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

She urged all to make united efforts to turn the country into a developed

one by 2041 to build a Sonar Bangla as dreamt by Father of the Nation

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
